Cybils 2007 Update - 12/29

It’s only a couple more days until the official announcement of the Cybils finalists in the categories of Fiction Picture Books, Poetry, Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Middle Grade Fiction. The finalists in these categories will be announced on the Cybils blog on January 1, at five minute increments, starting at 6:00 am Central Time. Then, finalists in Non-fiction Picture Books, Graphic Novels, Young Adult Novels, and MG/YA Non-fiction will be announced almost a week later, on January 7.

The nominating committee panelists have been busy reading and discussing books, trying to accomplish the difficult task of choosing only a handful of finalists from an outstanding field of nominees. As we approach the deadline, some of the panelists have been reading a couple of books a day! I’ve been concentrating so much on reading that I haven’t had time for the last couple of weeks to review the many excellent books I’ve read. I have a huge stack of books to review, and hope to begin reviewing them next week. Luckily, some of the other Fantasy/Science Fiction panelists have been better about posting reviews:
