Nominate Me for the Cybils!

There is still another week in which to nominate books for the Cybils Award!  I started going through all the eligible books I’ve read this year (far from exhaustive) to see what I wanted to nominate.  I have nominated in some categories; in others, such as the Middle Grade Speculative Fiction, I’m waiting to what other people nominate because I can’t nominate all the books I want to.  It’s taken me all week to put this post together, during which time, it’s gotten considerably shorter as other people have nominated the books.  I also have books at home waiting for me to read to see if I want to nominate them!

  1. I am also playing the waiting game to see what does/doesn’t get nominated before I make my decision 😛

  2. I just downloaded Spark; I’m anticipating liking it enough to nominate, if no one else has already.
