The Cybils Experience of Alysa Stewart

Today's post is probably more for myself than for anyone else. Every year in October I apply to be a Cybils judge, and every year I think, "How long have I been doing this?"

To make things easier on myself, and because some might find it interesting, I'm posting about it. And as the years go by, I'll update this post.

I missed the first year because I didn't know about the Cybils yet, and the second year because I hadn't been blogging long enough to be eligible. :)

  1. Awesome! Thank you for all the time and dedication you've given to the Cybils.

  2. That's a great list. I need to make one like it, just to remind myself of all the good times I've had judging Cybils.

    1. Thanks Sherry! I agree, you should make one. I remember back in 2008 when we were first on the same panel and I thought, "Sherry has good taste!" You know, you don't always have the same taste as the other panelists, which is probably good, but ever since then I've had you pegged as a good egg.

  3. Wow, you've been picking books for me for ten years! I'm looking forward to reading nonfiction with you.
