The CYBILS are coming!!

I'm very excited for the start of the CYBILS Awards this week. Anyone may nominate a book they think is an excellent book for children and young adults. So start thinking -- what would you nominate?
Nominations start Tuesday, October 1st and wrap up on October 15th. Yes, you really should nominate a book!! Here are some basic guidelines:

  • Each person can nominate one book in each category
  • Books must have been published between October 16, 2012 and October 15, 2013
  • For apps, this means they must have been originally released during this time frame
  • Book apps must be available on the iTunes App Store
  • Books must be specifically published for children and young adults

I'm especially excited to be leading the Book Apps category again. Please nominate apps that you think are great reading experiences for children and young adults. Here are some apps I'm particularly excited about. I have not read all of them, but these have all been published this past year and have piqued my interest:
Check out the Cybils FAQ for more guidelines. The description of the Book App Category can give you more information as well.

Once again: NOMINATIONS run from OCTOBER 1st-15th. You should definitely nominate your favorite books that were published in the last year. Head to the CYBILS site to find out more information.
