About the 2008 Cybils widget

Now in their third year, the Cybils are the Internet's first literary awards. The public nominates their favorite children's books. Then groups of bloggers get to work. First, a nominating committee reads ALL the titles in a given category. After nearly two arduous months, this committee winnows the nominees to five finalists. A second committee of bloggers considers the shortlist and, after much debate, chooses the best of the best for 2008.

Get and Customize the 2008 Cybils Widget for your Blog or Website

The 2008 Cybils Widget displays a different book every time it loads on your website. There are links where your site visitors can visit the 2008 Cybils website as well as to buy the book on Amazon or their local bookstore (via IndieBound). You can also earn a commission on any book sales by entering your Amazon Associates ID or your IndieBound Affiliate ID where indicated.
