It’s the tenth year of the Cybils Awards – check out the spiffy new 10th anniversary logo! And right now through September 9, applications are open for this year’s judges. If you are a book blogger as an author, librarian, teacher, or bookworm, you, too can apply to be a judge! I was a round 1 judge for the Middle Grade Speculative Fiction category last year, and it was so much fun!!! Even better than having a really good excuse to read instead of doing chores was getting to know my fellow judges better and having people to discuss everything I read with. It was so wonderful to know that at least one other person would have read any book I was reading and also have opinions on it. The Cybils team leaders are always looking for fresh voices, and there are so many different panels that if you love children and teen’s books, you are sure to find a panel that fits your personal passions.
