Well, I've known about this for about a week now, but since it's been officially announced, I'm happy to share that I've once again been chosen to participate in the Cybils Awards.
If you're new to the blog, then you may have never heard of the Cybils before. It's the Children's and Young Adult Literary Blogger Awards. It's a grassroots award that started back in 2006, in an attempt to balance book awards for kids and teens book between the literary merit of the Newberry and Printz awards to a popularity contest award. Thus, this is the first award that considers winners based on both literary accomplishment and "kid appeal".
I'll be back to joining the graphic novel committee this year, and I'm glad to see some new and familiar faces. I wasn't sure I would be able to participate this year due to an anticipated fuzzy schedule around the holidays this year, but I'm glad that things have settled down enough that I can participate.
The fun for the Cybils starts October 1st, and you can find out more about them by visiting their website.
