Still reading

The good news is that, with a week still to go before my Cybils committee begins narrowing the nominated nonfiction picture book titles down to a shortlist of five, I’ve already come up with a top ten list.

The rest of the story is that there are still 16 nominated titles I haven’t seen yet, which means it’s a mathematical possibility that my entire top ten could be wiped out by books I read between now and next Monday.

Have I mentioned that I’m not getting any writing done these days? Or that I don’t particularly mind?

  1. The book I nominated didn’t make the cut. I picked it up in Alaska this summer (Clueless in Alaska: Know More!) and was impressed with the amount of information it contained in such a variety of formats: articles, puzzles, photographs.

    I can only guess it didn’t fit the definition of nf pb, which seems to have been debated extensively. If it doesn’t fit here, it doesn’t fit anywhere. That’s a shame.

    I can accept the decision of the judges, of course, but I hope you’ll at least get a copy of the book to see what you’re missing. Sorry, I’m not willing to send you mine!
