Cybils Nominations

Ever wondered about literary awards and why the books you love don't always get nominated? Well, the nominations for the third annual Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards (the Cybils) opened Wednesday, October 1st and run through Wednesday, October 15th. The goal of the Cybils team (some 100 bloggers) is to highlight books that are high in both literary quality and youth appeal.

Anyone can nominate books in nine categories (one nomination per person per category). Nominated titles must be published between January 1st and October 15th of this year, and the books must be in English (or bilingual, where one of the languages is English). To nominate titles, visit the Cybils blog (http://www.cybils.com/) between October 1st and 15th. Vote for your favorites--I have!

Then between October 16th and January 1st, Cybils panelists will winnow the nominations down to a 5-7 book short list for each category. A second set of panelists will then select the winning titles for the different categories. The winners will be announced on February 14th, 2009.

Who did you vote for?

I noticed that you nominated The Magician in Sci Fi/Fantasy, which already had made it on to the list, so feel free to nominate another!

I have the list so far up at my blog (the link to it is on the top right).

Thanks. After browsing the list I realized noone had nominated Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr, which was fabulous.

Charlotte said...

Great! I'm looking forward to that one.

thanks!

Ahhh the Ink Exchange was an excellent book. Although dark and edgy it was beautifully written. Melissa Marr has a way of pulling us in as a reader and having us actually feel and experience what the characters are going thru.
