The Cybils

The nominating and judging committees for the first ever Children's and YA Bloggers' Literary Awards, the CYBILS (yes I know the acronym doesn't fit the letters, just don't blame me !) are being formed. If you want to volunteer, hop over to the site.

In the meantime, here are the Rules:

1. The book must be published in 2006 in English. Translations and bilingual books are okay too.

2. You can be anybody. You don't have to be a blogger to nominate a book. You can even be the author, the editor, the publicist, the next-door neighbor or best friend or just a random Googler.

3. If a book you love has already been nominated by someone else, you don't need to second it. We're pretty smart. We'll see it. Promise.

4. Please, pretty please, only nominate one book per category.

We fear editors submitting their entire lists, publicists under pressure from clients to nominate them all or indecisive types like yours truly who have 584 "favorite" books.

We're trying hard to not have any more rules, but if we cannot help ourselves, we will alert you at once.
