Cybils nominations close tonight, and a shout-out for Armchair Cybils 2013

Cybils nominations close tonight, at 12 PST.  It will be a relief to be free from the piteous clamor of all the un-nominated books, but I sure do hope more of them get nominated in the next few hours!

If you would like to join in the fun of reading a massive number of books in the next few months, and picking your favorites based on quality of writing plus kid appeal, sign up for Armchair Cybils 2013 at Hope is the World!

And if you haven't nominated yet, here's the form, here's what's already nominated in EMG SF, and here's my last list of suggestions (most of which I haven't read, so can't vouch for, but which look worthwhile), and there are many more at my original list.

    1. If one types "tanks" does the reader know it is "thanks said with exaggerated cuteness" or does that get totally lost in translation?

  2. I wonder if I can Armchair Cybil for the other categories . . .

  3. Looking forward to see how things go with the Cybils and happy reading for the team!
