Cybils Award - The 2006 Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards

Cyblis award - A new children's book award open to blogger nominations.

I have sent in my nomination already - Uma Krishnaswamy's The Closet Ghosts

In case you are interested in nominating your favorite children's and young adult books online - here's some information that I received from a friend about the award:

"The Cybils is a new award - It's probably the first blogger/online book award out there - all you need to do is go to the website, list the book, and write 1 sentence on why you're nominating it.

Here's the site:

The deadline to nominate is Monday at midnight (ET). If you take a sneak peek at the nominations, you might be able to get an idea about some of the best books in various categories for this year - picture book, fantasy and science fiction, middle grade fiction, poetry, young adult fiction etc.

Thank you all! See you next week!
