The Cybils website is open and taking nominations for the best children's books of 2009. The public is invited to nominate titles. Come one, come all! But do it soon; nominations close on October 15th.
Volunteer panelist/bloggers in many different categories (Easy Readers, Young Adult Fiction, etc.) will read the nominated books and pare down each long list into a group of five (or so).
Those short lists will be announced on January 1, 2010. Then a second posse of volunteer panelist/bloggers will read those books and choose the winner in each category. In mid-February the winners will be announced.
