That's right folks. It's almost time for the CYBILS process to begin. This year, expect it to bigger, badder, and frenzier (?) than ever, since more folks will have heard of the Awards and therefore will be nominating books. More nominations = more books for the panelists to read. More opportunities for books to win. Etc.
You can read a bit about it over at the current CYBILS page. Daily posts will begin there on September 17th, and the nominating process is probably going to be opened up by October 1st.
And I promise to have updates here as well (at least about big stuff). Because, well -- I'm the shepherd for the Poetry category this year.
