Time is running out to nominate your favorites for the Cybils!

You only have until October 15 to nominate one book from each award category. And there are still lots of great books that I know I would love to see nominated.

Below, in no particular order, is a list of all of the books I’d love to see nominated for the 2012 Cybils. All you have to do is register for the Cybils database, pick one from each category and submit it! The Cybils blog also has some links to lists that need more nominations as well as ideas for what to nominate.

Remember, for a book to be eligible it has to have been released between Oct. 16, 2011 and Oct. 15, 2012

(Full disclosure: I should also remind everyone that I will be serving as a Round 2 Judge in the Teen Science Fiction and Fantasy category meaning that once the Round 1 panel announces the shortlist I’ll work with my fellow judges to select the winner.)
