It's that time of year again!  Vote for your favorite children and YA books!

What are the Cybils?  They are the Children and YA Blogger Literary Awards.  These are books chosen by...YOU!  I've been a panelist for the last few years and totally love this contest.
Here's the rules:

•One book per genre per person. Have two young adult books you love? Get a best friend, co-worker or random stranger to nominate the other one.

•Anyone may nominate. Anyone! This means you. And me. And that person over there, and the guy who cut you off in traffic. Or that kid you won't sit next to at lunch. Anyone!

•The book must have been published between the last contest and this close of this one. In other words, between Oct. 16, 2009 and Oct. 15th 2010.

•The book can be bilingual, but one of the languages must be English.

•As long as a book has a nomination, it'll be considered. You don't need to try and nominate it over and over. The nomination form will kick it back to you anyway.

Important change! Read below!

We've divided Graphic Novels and Fantasy & Science Fiction into two groups by age. Similarly, Easy Readers is now distinct from Early Chapter Books. So you get TWO nominations in each of those genres -- so long as it's one in each age group.

Nominations remain open until October 15th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time!  Here's the link to go to for nominating your favorite books!



  1. I've been over there. Some tough competition. Should be interesting to see how it turns out. Have fun, Kim.

  2. There's tons of great books being nominated!
