It's Cybils time! Cybils are, of course, the awards given each year by bloggers for the best children and young adult titles.
Tomorrow, just after midnight Pacific time, you may nominate your favorite books for the Cybils Award. A mobile-friendly form will be live at www.cybils.com. Nominations will be taken from October 1-15. There are ten categories:
This year, publishers and self-published authors are asked to refrain from nominating their own books until after the public has an opportunity to nominate books.
Happily, I will be serving as a judge for the Cybils for the fifth time. I spent a very, very busy fall last year, reading and reviewing almost 300 children's fiction picture books in two months. This year, I will be reading and reviewing for the children's nonfiction picture book panel.
