It's That Time of the Year Again - That's Right! It's CYBILS Time!

I am just so excited because tomorrow TODAY October 1, 2016, nominations open in a variety of categories for this very prestigious award.  Surely, among these categories there are books that left you with winning memories.  I know I can think of more than a few.  So head on over to the Cybils Nominations and let the fun begin!

Board Books
Fiction Picture Books
Easy Reader/Early Chapter Books

Middle Grade Fiction
Young Adult Fiction

Elementary and Middle Grade Speculative Fiction
Young Adult Speculative Fiction

Elementary and Juvenile Non-Fiction
Middle Grade/Young Adult Non-Fiction

Graphic Novels

Of course, there are a few simple rules for nominating your favorites books.  These are

1- You (and you can be anybody, even you) may nominate any book published in the contest year in
     English.  However, this does include bilingual books, as well;
2- The book must be published in the US or Canada.  It's just more aggravation and expense than we
     can stand to wheedle free copies from foreign publisher;
3- Only one book nomination per category.  Get your friends and co-workers in on the act if you can't      make up your mind;
4- Nominations open October 1 and close October 15;
5- Please see the frequently asked question for more eligibility information.

Once again, I am delighted to be a Cybils 2nd Round judge in the category of Middle Grade Fiction for the fourth year in a row and I am looking forward to reading some wonderful novels.

So, get your thinking caps on and revisit the past year to see what books you think are Cybils winner.
