If you haven't yet heard of the Cybil Awards, you're probably new to the crannies of cyberspace created by aficionados of literature for children and young adults. But don't worry. You can head over to the site right now to nominate your favorite book in the young adult novel, nonfiction, middle grade fiction, poetry, picture book, fantasy and science fiction, and graphic novel categories. Here are the rules in a nutshell (lifted verbatim from the site):
(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.
