How cool are you to break it down like that?! I can't wait 'til the announcement! I imagine this has been a huge and horrible job for the judges... and I don't even know anymore whom I want to win!
Fun post! I'm definitely excited for the announcement next week.
This is excellent!! I love the total number of pages. I also like your keeping the focus on the whole list, even as we're getting prepared to announce the "winner". There are so many other great books, in so many diverse areas, and I think a big part of what the Cybils teams have accomplished is compiling these lists. Thanks for the reminder!
Wow, Jackie, how long did this take you?
I especially like the "twue luv" category!;)
Er... Sara you probably don't want to know. I did it in very small increments when in an obsessive mood. So we'll treat it as therapy? sigh. ;)
This post rocks my world.
