2008 Cybils

Over at http://dadtalk.typepad.com/cybils/, the Cybils Team is gearing up for their 2008 awards! In case you didn't know, The Cybils are "the children's and young adult bloggers' literary awards." So, bloggers nominate great books published in 2008, then panelists (also bloggers) read all the nominations and come up with a shortlist (10 ish titles) of finalists, and then the judges (a final round of bloggers) pick a winner!

What you end up with is a bunch of lists of great new books that a lot of people liked!

Anyway, there are nine categories or genres in which to nominate books -- which means there will be nine shortlists and nine winners. And here's the part I'm most excited about: yours truly (as in me, Alysa) is a panelist for the Middle Grade Fiction category! So. Come October 1st y'all get over to the Cybils and nominate your favorite books published in 2008 for kids 8-12! And your other favorites too. I'll put a link in the sidebar.


  1. I feel like I need to go around and say "nice to meet you" to all the panelists, because I know nobody on the list!! Anyway... love your blog (your interview with Laini Taylor was a riot), and looking forward to working with you on the panel!!

  2. I'm really excited too to be a part of the Cybils this year. Looking forward to working with you on the panel.

  3. Let me join the chorus! I'm so excited to be part of the grand 2008 Cybils endeavor! What fun!!

  4. Yay!
    I am really excited to work with you on the Cybils panel. Your blog is wonderful - informative and FUNNY!
