Since the Throwdown ends Friday, Aug. 9, this will be our last update before prizes are awarded and winners are crowned. As it sits right now, the Throwdown is too close to call. I am still in the lead, but Team Everyone Else is well within striking distance. The individual race is just as close: fewer than 100 pages separates the top two readers. It's anybody's game!
The party for the winning team will be on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 3 p.m. at the library. We'll have food and drink and award prizes to the winning team and the top individual reader will get their own prize: a brand-new Kindle Fire.
So keep your eye on the prize, Team Everyone Else: you're almost there.
