Oct. 1 is the opening day to nominate books from 2008 for this year's Cybils awards. The Cybils was started in 2006 by Anne Boles Levy and Kelly Harold as a way for bloggers to celebrate and promote their picks of the best books of the year. Anyone can nominate a book in each category. I am thrilled to be chosen as one of the first round panelists for the newly designed "Easy Reader" category. Check out this post, this one, and this one for more on that. Then keep reading at the Cybils blog all this week to hear about all the other fantastic, fascinating categories and their committees. And get ready to nominate your favorite kid's books of the year!
