Here's a little something interesting you might be interested in:
Teenreads.com is collaborating with the Children's Book Council offering teens an opportunity to share their five favorite books of 2008. The five titles that receive the most “votes” will serve as the finalists for the CBC’s 2009 Teen Choice Book Award. A list of nominees can be found at http://www.teenreads.com/features/ccba_nominees_2009.asp, where you also may find information on how to nominate other titles published in 2008. The deadline for nominating books is January 31, 2009.
That's pretty exciting--there's a great list of contenders up there already, so be sure to check it out!
