New Nonfiction Policy

Just a heads up, I have updated my review policy with the following language:

I am currently serving on YALSA's Award for Excellence in Nonfiction committee. The policy says Committee appointees must not discuss books on social media that are eligible for their award in any way that could lead to a conflict or lack of confidentiality in regards to their committee. Mentioning the existence of a book is fine. Discussing its merits as pertains to the award criteria is not. Yes, I could review books that are eligible as long as I divorce them from the committee and... that sounds like a lot of work. Rest assured, I'm taking very good notes and writing reviews, but you won't see anything until February 2013 and then, maybe not everything. I'll decide then.

Now, you'll still see Nonfiction books reviewed this year-- I'm still posting reviews from last year's Cybils, and I'm reading some nonfiction that's not eligible for the ENYA (because it came out before November 1, 2011 or it's for adults). BUT, you won't see any new nonfiction for teens this year. Which is really, really hard, because I'm reading some really good books.
