Procedures

The Committee will consider and vote on books published within the 2 years prior to the year the list is published. Nominations may be accepted from the public and Committee members up to October 1 of that calendar year.

The book must be favorably reviewed in a scholarly journal for grades 6, 7, or 8. The person making the nomination must have read the book. Only one book per author per genre may be included on the list. Titles shall be nominated that reflect a variety of difficulty levels for readers in grades 6-8. The committee strives for a fairly equal distribution of books targeting each of the three grade levels and within each set further seeks balance in areas such as genre, gender appeal, interest, subject, and difficulty.
