You can get more information here and we'll be working through the shortlist over the summer. There are some key differences with this award and what they're asking for from you.
1. Your reviews should be 200 words or less. (Sorry Jenna!) This is going to be a bit of a challenge for some of you who have got used to writing your absolutely fantastic Carnegie reviews, but I think if you're a bit concise, you'll be fine. Choose your words carefully!
2. You might need to join the Guardian site and submit your reviews directly to them too.
I think. At the moment the link that takes you to the application form is down, so I will chase it up and find out if this will be necessary. My hope is that we'll be able to submit the blog as a whole. I will let you all know!
The shortlist is eight books and should be really fun to read! It looks as though we can only afford to buy two copies of each I'm afraid, but if you'd all be willing to do the 'everyone buys one book' thing, that would really help out.
Here's the list:
There will be more details to follow, and I'll find out about the application. Official launch tomorrow lunchtime! Be there for 1.30pm.
You may have noticed a new look for the blog, which seems only right as we move on to our awesome new projects. There's also a new page, which I'll talk to you all about tomorrow. I though it would be really nice to have a forum so that you can leave each other messages and coordinate your efforts. When the new school VLE comes in, we should be able to have one on there too, but for now, this is where you can start! There are a few concerns about security issues etc so you can't access it yet, but soon...
