Get Your Nominations In

Two days from now — Thursday, October 15th — is the last day to nominate your favorite children’s and young adult books published in the last year for a Cybil Award. The book(s) you nominate need to have have been published sometime between October 15, 2008 and October 15, 2009. You are allowed to nominate one book in each of the following categories:

Easy Readers/Short Chapter Books
Fantasy & Science Fiction
Fiction Picture Books
Graphic Novels
Middle Grade Fiction
Non-Fiction Picture Books
Non-Fiction: Middle Grade & Young Adult
Poetry
Young Adult Fiction

Click on the category title to see the list of books already nominated in that category. I’m really not very good when it comes to coming up with lists of books that haven’t been nominated. Click here to see Sherry’s list of books she’d like to see… I can tell you that right now we only have 92 books on my panel’s list, which is about 40 short from last year. (Does that mean there aren’t as many good Middle Grade books published this year?) I have noticed that we’re missing the latest Moxy Maxwell and Heavy Medal Newbery favorite A Season of Gifts on our list. If you haven’t spent your nomination in the Middle Grade Fiction category, consider one of those two. (Or others. I’m sure there are others…)

At any rate, you only have two days left to get your nominations in!
