First off: nominations for the Cybils open on Tuesday. I’ve been busy thinking of books to nominate for each category (follow the link for category descriptions), and then back-up books for those just in case my first choices are already nominated by the time I get to the computer. The nominations are open to everyone, and are for books published between October 26, 2012 and October 15, 2013. You’re going to nominate something. Right???
Registration for KidlitCon 2103 is open. You should come, and not just because it’s going to be in Austin, TX. Need some convincing?? Check out Bookshelves of Doom, Jen Robinson, Charlotte’s Library, Mother Reader, and Fuse #8 for some thoughts. I’ve already registered, asked for the days off of work, and got myself a roommate (hopefully), so I’ll see you there. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone, learning, and getting the chance to hang out with my people.
