Cybils Short Lists

The venerable nominating committees for the 2006 Children's and Young-Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards (Cybils) have completed their work, reading and evaluating 480 books in just 6 weeks.

We now have a short list for each of the Cybils categories (click link for list):

Fantasy and Science Fiction

Graphic Novels

Non-Fiction (Middle Grade and YA)

Middle Grade Fiction

Young Adult Fiction

Fiction Picture Books

Non-Fiction Picture Books

Poetry

I'm one of the judges for the Young Adult fiction category, which means I'll be reading those 5 nominees over the next few weeks.

If you find yourself shopping for books in any of the above categories, keep in mind that some pretty smart people chose these Cybils-short-list books as the best of 2006.

That should be fun for you, but when will you find the time?
