2023-2024 Middle School Battle of the Books List


    2023-2024 High School Battle of the Books List

    Calling all 7th-12th graders!
    North Duplin needs you to join our Battle of the Books team and READ!
    All students are encouraged to read our BOB list!

    North Duplin Jr. Sr High School proudly participates in the NC Battle of the Books program.
    Philosophy from the NC BOB State Manual 
    The purpose of the Battle of the Books program is to encourage reading by all students at the middle school level. Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors in the area of young adult literature. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base. Even during the height of the competition, students and coaches should remember that the goal is to read, not necessarily to win!
