"Read like a wolf eats!" Gary Paulsen

Alaska Battle of the Books is a voluntary motivational reading and reading comprehension program. East High School has participated in Battle of the Books since the 2004-2005 school year. Everyone is welcome to join Battle of the Books and it is never too late to join!


Students who participate in BOB must share the book summaries with their parents or guardians. The summaries are available in the library and on this PDF.


Ms. Faith, the librarian, and Mr. Kimberling are the East sponsors for Battle of the Books.
