Calling all readers - It's time to nominate books for the Cybils

For the last two years bloggers all over the world have come together once a year to choose the books from that year that they liked the most. The books they have been chosen have then been given Cybil Awards. The process begins with members of the public nominating their favorite books in several categories. These are: Fantasy and Science Fiction, Fiction Picture Books, Non-Fiction Picture Books, Graphic Novels, Easy Readers, Middle Grade Fiction, Young Adult Novels, Non-Fiction (Middle Grade and YA), Poetry. Once the nomination period is closed, a collection of knowledgeable bloggers get together to read the nominated books and to decide which of the nominated titles are the winners.

The nomination period is now open, so if you are a reader of children's literature, or if you read a lot to your child or children and remember the books that you liked, take the plunge and submit the names of your favorite books that were published in 2008.

To find out more about the Cybil awards and this process please visit the main Cybils Awards webpage. To nominate a book or books in the categories please visit the nomination webpage. Have fun!
