Aww, thanks Natalie. It's my favorite part of the season, looking at what gets nominated and the challenge of reading as many as I can. 🙂

Congratulations! I've never participated in a Cybils, so I'll have to keep tabs on it this year.

It's lots of fun, you should think about it sometime. Lots of reading but also lots of fun talking books. There is a ton of categories too. Even audiobooks this year.
