The shortlists are live! (YAY!)
I was a first-round panelist for the first time in several years, and I remembered why I needed to back off from that… it’s SO very time consuming.

I am really proud of the shortlist we came up with, and it was relatively painless as well. There were a lot of good books to choose from, and I’m happy with the list we came up with.
Here’s our books:
