The Cybils

The Cybils are a newish award series given out by a gaggle of cool children's and young adult literature bloggers but nominations come from the public.  What I like about these awards is that they play a very different role in the award-world than other awards like the Newbery and Caldecott.  They're more grassroots and 'of the people.'  It's nice to have both perspectives addressed in an award.

And The Cybils opened just yesterday and you can nominate your favorite book here.
