Let's Celebrate 2015 Cybils Book Apps Judges!

It's time to CELEBRATE This Week with Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build.  Every week Ruth invites us to share our celebrations from the week and link up at her blog. What a fun way to reflect on everything there is to be thankful for.

This week I'm celebrating 2015 Cybils Book Apps Judges!

*throws confetti*

I've been fortunate enough to be part of the Cybils fun for the last two years and am excited to share that I'll be a judge again this year. I love explore book apps and discussing the apps with the other judges. Being immersed in book apps and great conversation around them has truly impacted how I think about book apps and I'm happy to help bring the best book apps forward as finalists for the second round of judges to look at. Here are the book apps we shortlisted last year. They are all amazing!

If you aren't familiar with Cybils, they have all sorts of different categories: Graphics, Poetry, YA Speculative Fiction, YA Fiction, YA Non-Fiction, Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction, Middle Grade Fiction, Elementary/Middle Grade Non-Fiction, Easy Reader/Early Chapter Books, Fiction Picture Books. Isn't that just amazing? 

Here are all the Book Apps Judges in case you want to check out their blogs or Twitter streams. I'm so looking forward to seeing what books are nominated. If you have any book apps that you love from this year, make sure you nominate them starting October 1st!
