Still Time to Make Those Cybils Nominations!!

The week got away from me, and I didn't have time for a Marvelous Middle Grade Monday posting! However, I would like to take this opportunity to toot the Cybils trumpet (yes, I am a second round judge and want to read some stellar stuff) and have you go and look at the list of nominees so far--and perhaps nominate one/some of your own. So many Middle Grade Masters visit this blog: please share some of your knowledge and taste with the Cybils.

Here are the links: Middle Grade
                            Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction

Nominations close on October 15th. The eligibility requirements are as follows (from the Cybils FAQ page): Any English or bilingual books published in the U.S. or Canada between the end of one contest and start of another. For 2013, that means books released between Oct. 16, 2012 and Oct. 15, 2013.

Have a wonderful reading--and nominating--week!


  1. Thanks for the reminder. I looked at the list and you already have many of my favorites on there.

  2. I have never nominated wimp-out way of not choosing just one I love, I think. :-)

  3. Done! (Actually, the middle grade fiction I was planning to nominate had already been nominated - but I managed to get in a spec fiction one that wasn't on the list!)

    I envy you, getting to be a second-round judge and reading only the best of the best.


Youse got something to say? Well, say it then. (The Don and I will shoot you... a personal reply, that is. But if we can't find your e-mail, we'll just reply in the comment box.)
