And the winner is...
Have you always wondered how books get onto shortlists for the various book awards? Well, in the case of the Cybils [ ], cyber-savvy readers nominate titles for the long lists. Then, blogger-types read all the nominees and create short-lists. And then, panels of booky bloggers select the winners. As a judge in the picture book category, I am very curious how this is all going to pan out. I believe nominations are still open, so if you have a favourite picture book (there are two categories, non-fiction and fiction), YA novel, fantasy or sci-fi title, middle grade novel, graphic novel, etc. that you just love - here's your chance to help it get on a prize list.
