ROUND TWO FINISH - When do We Get to the Good Stuff?

I promise you folks...we did not keep the award winners in the closet!! Every book you read won a reward or was given high praise by people who claim to know better. What does it tell you?

It tells you if you are not reading books for the students in your class you can't depend on award winners to provide.

It tells you opinions and attitudes around books vary greatly...just like your kids do.

It tells you that you should maybe read some of the early Smackdown exiters to find the book you might cherish for the zombie pick.

Not all blogs are in but all results are and the quarter-finals have the following matchups in Jeopardy question form:

1. What is a Crossover Gabi?
2. What is a Crazy Nest?
3.  What are Only Family?
4. What are Living Secrets?

Check the updated draw if you can't figure it out from there.  Teams for the quarter-final draws will be emailed to participants today.  Now get out there and Smack!
