Goodbye, 2006--you were a good one and will be remembered fondly.
One of the best events of 2006 was the beginning of The Cybils. A big thanks to Anne Boles Levy of Book Buds for all her hard work in getting The Cybils off the ground and running smoothly. Anne sent along vital information about The Cybils shortlists and when they will appear tomorrow. That's right! They'll be up tomorrow morning--in 2007. Here are some fun facts about The Cybils nominating process:
