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?
