January 14th, 2011 is the deadline for voting for your favorite Blue Spruce Book! The Blue Spruce Book nominees are selected by Colorado middle and high school students. Then, every January, teens from around the state vote for their favorite nominee. The 2010 winner was the wildly popular Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
There are some great books (and some surprising titles) on this years list of nominees. Visit the Blue Spruce Page on the EMS Literacy Wiki and you can watch the Animoto (see below), and check on Blue Spruce Title availability in the Blue Spruce Livebinder (click the “Find the Books in Your Library” tab). Most importantly, you can VOTE! The voting form is up now on the Blue Spruce wiki page, so if you’ve read at least 3 of the nominated titles, go there and vote now!
