The votes are in!

Cybils nominating is officially closed. I can't speak for any other category, but the YA section received 80 (!!) nominations. The 5 of us (Little Willow, Mindy, Sara, TadMack & myself) on the shortlist panel will be whittling the 80 down to 5 by the end of December. Each book has to be read by AT LEAST 2 panelists, with everyone aiming to read as many as possible. You can find the entire list by going to our fantastic moderator/organizer, Jen Robinson's Book Page. Seriously, that woman Rocks.

In light of this fabulous and lengthy list, I will now be including my tally at the end of each Cybil book read. You know, just for fun. All books I read, like or not, are always blogged (caveat: I don't generally blog books I don't finish. Or picture books.), so if you search the blog, or My LibraryThing, you'll find all the books I've written about, including prior this extravaganza. Eventually, I'll get around to tagging them. Won't that be exciting? heh. ;)

Thanks, Jackie! And good luck with all of that reading. I'm kind of envious, and kind of relieved that I don't have to read quite so many books. But I think it's a great reading list to work from anyway. I'll look forward to seeing your progress.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just out of curiousity, perhaps for future reference how would one go about getting on the shortlist panel???
