Please be Cybil

A group of US bloggers* on children’s and YA lit have taken the law into their own hands and set up their own literary awards: the Cybils.
The democracy of the blogosphere in action: anyone can nominate a book in one several categories, and these all go to specialist panels of volunteer judges who make the final decision. It’s all very transparent, but we’ll wait to see if their decisions are greeted with the same level of debate as other awards announcements.
Take at look at The Cybils here.

* That makes me wonder: what’s the collective noun for bloggers?
A gaggle of bloggers?
A coven?
A pod?
