2011 Chocolate Lily short-list announced

So, I keep getting asked about the short-list for the 2011 Chocolate Lily Book Award (a BC reader's choice award), and I haven't been able to find the info anywhere.  In desperation, I email the founder yesterday, and it just so happens that the list was announced this morning.  So stop bugging me you guys.  Here it is.
