The Cybils finalists are up. I was a little disappointed that no manga titles made it to the final round for the graphic novels category. Still, as a judge I’m happy to see that some strong contenders made the first cut.
The Cybils graphic novel nominations list is up. I’m sort of glad that I’m on the judging panel, because I can just sit back and let the nominations folk take care of whittling the list down 🙂
You can nominate books for the kids’ lit blog book awards right here.
Children’s lit bloggers seem to be so organized, and they keep coming up with new projects like blog awards for children’s books.
Dave asks, What’s Distracting Patricia?
I think she’s been put into a trance-like state due to the antics of the Ouran High School Host Club twins.
Welcome back, Well Dressed Librarian!
If you have any more posts for the Carnival of Infosciences, send them to me (tangognat @ tangognat.com) by 6pm Eastern time tonight. Thanks!
I’ll take any post you would care to send but perhaps some ideas might get the posts flowing, so to speak.
It is National Library Week! What are you doing, if anything, to celebrate? And does it involve beer and random trivia about Ranganathan?
What the heck is up with ALA’s request for a propsal to examine the feasibility of the creation of a “Library Corps” of retired librarians who would volunteer their time in libraries when new graduates are having a hard time finding jobs?
We’ve got Harry and the Potters, which book should be next to inspire a costumed tribute band?
It really seems like there’s something going on with bloglines not picking up on feeds after people upgrade to WordPress 2.02. My feeds don’t work, and when I looked over some of the other blogs I follow that also run WordPress, I’m getting similar bloglines error messages when logging in to see if there are any updates from Comics Worth Reading, Rose Read, Etc, Polite Dissent, and Stefan. I’ve searched the wordpress support forums, and I haven’t found anything concrete about this problem, so I’m assuming that this is a problem on the Bloglines end. After semi-breaking my site yesterday while noodling around trying out different settings and rewrite rules for the feeds, I’m not even going to attempt to do anything about this problem for now. I did drop a note to Bloglines customer support, but I haven’t heard anything yet.
Update: It looks like everything is working just fine now. That’s great, I must have super blog mojo or something, that the problem would be fixed shortly after I blogged about it 🙂
