Around the interwebs

Book Blogger Appreciation Week is, like, NEXT WEEK! And the shortlists for the BBAW awards are up, so you should go vote! Just remember that it's all in good fun. (And nope, I wasn't shortlisted, but many cool kidlit blogs were, so go support them!)

Are you as excited about the Cybils as I am? If so, you might want to head over to the Cybils Cafe Press shop and pick up some Cybils bling. They have t-shirts, a tote bag, a mouse pad, and more, all with the super awesome 2009 Cybils logo on them. All proceeds go towards the awards for the winners.

So, Saturday, September 26. If you're in Chicagoland I know where you'll be. But if you're in the DC area, maybe you're heading down to the National Book Festival. And if you're in neither place, you'll be interested to know that there are many ways to follow the National Book Festival from afar. You can follow LOC on Twitter to get up-to-the-minute info (the hashtag is #nbf) and be sure to become a fan of their Facebook page.

Wanna Get the Scoop on Series Nonfiction? Booklist is offering a free webinar, so check it out.

Check out a preview of Mo Willem's upcoming pop-OUT book, Big Frog Can't Fit In. But my questions is this: If Big Frog can't fit in, how are we going to fit it on our shelves?

You have until September 16 to decide you're cool and join us for the 2009 KidLitosphere Conference. (And by "cool", I mean incredibly geeky, of course.)

And that's all I've got for you for now. What have you been surfing this week?
