There are a lot of book awards given out each year. The *Cybils are one of my favorites. It's not judged by "professionals" (people paid to have an opinion) but by readers/book bloggers (people who simply LOVE books). Who picks what books go into the pool?
So if you've read a children's book (picture/MG/YA) this year that blew you away, support the book by nominating it: http://www.wandsandworlds.com/cybils/nominate.php
Personally, I nominated Janitors by Tyler Whitesides.
Who will you nominate (and no, I'm not hinting for you all to go nominate Witch. It's already there!!! Seriously though, go support the authors who blew you away this year)?
*The Cybils awards are given each year by bloggers for the year's best children's and young adult titles. Nominations open to the public on October 1st and close on Oct 15th.
