Introducing the 2007 Cybils MG/YA Nonfiction Nominees

Cybils2007white2007 Cybils nominations are now closed. I am thrilled to be on the nominating committee for the MG/YA Non-Fiction category. While I haven't read all of these books yet, these books were nominated because someone really enjoyed them. I'm sure a few of these books will make it to my Great Books for Girls & Cool Books for Boys lists (Both lists are in serious need of some updating).

In case you haven't seen it yet, here is the list of nominated titles for the middle grade and young adult nonfiction category. Thank you, Jen, for putting together the code.

If you have a blog, please think about installing the Cybils widget from JacketFlap, with which you can display a new Cybils-nominated title every time your blog is refreshed. I've got mine set to show the MG/YA Non-Fiction Nominees. You can also customize colors and genres. Special thanks to Tracy Grand for providing this lovely widget free of charge for the Cybils.



Please note that if you purchase any of the Cybils titles by clicking through to Amazon or BookSense from any of the nominations posts (including this one) or from the Cybils widget a small commission will go to the Cybils organization. Proceeds will go towards prizes for the winners. Thanks for supporting the Cybils.
