Cybils, book awards given by the children's and young adult blogging community. After nominations from the public for easy readers/short chapter books, fantasy and science fiction, fiction picture books, graphic novels, middle grade fiction, nonfiction picture books, MG/YA nonfiction books, poetry, and young adult fiction, the first round judges read--or attempt to read, if they can get a copy--all of the books in their categories. A second round picks a winner from the first round's shortlist.
I am the biggest geek you know right now--I love science fiction and fantasy, and spending the rest of the year devouring books as fast as I can sounds like the best thing ever! I'll post when nominations are open, and please do nominate interesting, exciting, diverse, thoughtful books. In reality, every reader out there is part of the first round.
