Book news from the blogosphere

| 6

The shortlists for the awards as part of the upcoming Book Blogger Appreciation Week have been announced and I’m utterly thrilled to say I’ve made it onto the Kidlit shortlist, along with Teach Mentor Texts and There’s a Book. If you’re looking for some links to explore this (bank holiday) weekend, do have a look at the complete list of finalists. I’m sure you’ll find something to enjoy!

In other news, the call for Cybil judges has gone out. The Cybils are the Children and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards and if you’d like to take part please consider offering your time and enthusiasm as a judge!

In case you’d like some more reading, the August Carnival of Children’s Literature is now live, over at Stories Are Light. There are so many great posts there this month! For once I’m glad of the rain here – the perfect excuse for another cup of tea and a browse round some of the wonderful book shelves in the blogosphere.

    Congrats! And thank you so much for the mention! I honestly quite shocked and honored to see my site’s name on that list. There truly are so many great blogs out there, like Paula said.

    And yay! I can’t wait for Cybils! I didn’t participate last year because I was too new, but I’m thinking about throwing my hat in the ring this go around, we’ll see how it goes!

      Hi Danielle,
      I share your sentiments exactly re the shortlisting! I’ve offered to judge for the Cybils, but may be at a disadvantage being in the UK – getting hold of review copies could be rather difficult so I’m not holding my breath about being selected as a judge.
