Cybils nominations are officially open, so go nominate your favorite book in all sorts of categories, from easy readers to poetry to YA fiction and more. You only have until October 15, so hurry!

What are the Cybils? Awards for fabulous children's and YA books published this year, nominated by anyone, and voted on by carefully selected kidlit bloggers. For more information, read this.
