My First 26 Cybils Fiction Picture Books and Board Books for 2022


It's October and that means it's Cybils time. As a first round judge for the Cybils Fiction Picture Books and Board Books Awards, I have a huge job: by January 1st, I must read over 200 picture books and board books and decide with a group of others which are the best. This week I read a bunch that I got in from the library. Busy times!

And guess what I'm reading now? Right...more Cybils nominees!

Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz: 

The Sunday Salon: Just One Book Read, But It Was a Good One: The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O'Farrell

Nonfiction November 2022 is Coming!

It’s almost time for Nonfiction November! Nonfiction is one of my favorite genres, so you can be sure I'll be joining in.

Throughout the month of November, bloggers Jaymi (The OC Book Girl), Rennie (What’s Nonfiction), Christopher (Plucked from the Stacks), Rebekah (She Seeks Nonfiction) and Katie (Doing Deweyinvite you to celebrate Nonfiction November.

Here’s how it will work: Each Monday, a weekly host will post a topic prompt and include a “linky” where you can link your posts and connect with other bloggers. 

Will you be joining in?

My sister and I finally got a chance to celebrate her birthday by having a Paris at Home Day. If you know me, you know how much I love Paris...well, my sister is my Francophile twin. We ate food from Paris and drank French wine and watched Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris. Delightful!

Good Thing #1
My dad was recognized at the Astros playoff game this week
for his service as during World War II. 
The crowd gave him a standing ovation.

Good Thing #2
We saw more butterflies and bees and wasps this week
as we continued to do the Pollinator Bioblitz.

Good Thing #3
We heard an author speak at our local library friends group's annual luncheon.
The author was a chef for the governor and the president
when Bush Jr. held these offices.
The author's a local fellow and it was fun to hear his stories and to taste his recipes.

I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:

  • What was your week like?
  • Read any good books? Tell us about them.
  • What other bookish things did you do? 
  • What else is going on in your life?
