Now another panel has the job of selecting a winner from that list – I don’t envy them the job of narrowing it down! The winner will be announced in February. In the meantime, I encourage all of you to check out the blogs of my fellow panelists (they’re excellent writers as well as readers!): Charlotte of Charlotte’s Library (our valiant ringleader!), Liviania of In Bed With Books, Stephanie of Views from the Tesseract, Kristen of The Book Monsters, Melissa of The Book Nut, and Brandy of Random Musings of a Bibliophile.
Shortlists for all of the CYBILS categories are up on the website. Go check them out for wonderful reading recommendations!
