Cybils! YA Panel

I'm on the Cybils YA panel this year!! And I am looking forward to it for many reasons. Look who I get to work with! Great people and some potentially great books. Nominations begin on October 1. So start thinking now of which titles you'd like to nominate. The categories are: fantasy and science fiction, fiction picture books, nonfiction picture books, easy readers, middle grade fiction, middle grade & young adult nonfiction, young adult fiction, poetry, graphic novels. For more on the cybils, visit the website.
The introductory post is here. (Two panels haven't been announced yet...graphic and fantasy and science fiction.) The post listing the rules (some new) for this year can be found here. One of the new rules is "This year, only books published in English between Jan. 1 and Oct. 15 are eligible."
