The Cybils have announced the shortlists for their first annual awards. In a testament to how many good books there are in the world, the only category in which I've read most (indeed, any) of the entries is young adult. I'm just gonna print out the list and take it to work with me.
In my defense, many of the books listed are already in my Blue Journal of Stuff I Gotta Read Before I Die. At this rate, I'll have to live to age 167.
Anyway, the big winners should be announced sometime in February, but check out the shortlist now.
