Cybils Awards

Nominations are open for the 2011 Cybils Awards and YOU can nominate your favorite books of 2011! What are the Cybils, you ask? They are the Children’s and Young Adult Blogger’s Literary Awards. Awards are given in a variety of genres to the best Children’s and YA books, selected by volunteer judges from the book-blogging world and nominated by me and you! It’s a pretty cool thing to be involved in. I just entered my nominations and it was a really simple process. They are accepting nominations until October 15.

I think this is a really cool way for the book blogging community to gather together and have a say in what is considered award-worthy, quality literature for children and young adults. Hey, someday you might even be able to be a judge too! I know I’d love to be! Here is the nomination form and here are the eligibility requirements, as well as more information about the awards. Have fun and check back January 1 for the winners!
