Come one! Come All!
Teachers and Librarians that is!
Are you a teacher or librarian that loves to read?
Had you already planned on catching up with books you missed during the school year!
Think you can read "competitively"?
Join us for the first (and hopefully not last)
School Librarians vs Teachers
Summer Throwdown!!This is going to be one fun, amazing, summer reading challenge you don't want to miss!
Complete details at Heise Reads and Recommends!
Rule #1 - the #summerthrowdown will run from June 18th - July 17th
If you are less than half done with a book before the 18th, you can finish it on the 18th and it will count! But, if you are NOT done with a book by July 17th - it does NOT count!
Rule #2 - team with the most points at the end of the throwdown wins
Under 50 pages = 1/4 point
50 - 150 = 1/2 point
151 - over = 1 point
Rule #3 - This should be fun for everyone!
While trash talk is welcomed and expected, remember, we are teachers and librarians! No hits below the belt!

Jillian (@heisereads) and Brian (@brianwyzlic) do this fantastic contest between their sister classrooms. To read more about it visit Jillian's blog, Heise Reads and Recommends or Brian's Blog, Wyz Reads, where they tell you What is This #Throwdown Thing Anyway.
I asked Brian, nicely, about it on twitter and he threw down the gauntlet! Ok, Sherry actually threw it down. Brian picked it up and ran away with it! Teachers! You can't beat them, but you can read more than they can!
