I can see both plusses and minuses in using a larger date range. What does everyone else think?

Publication Range for Books
I noticed in the Children's Book Award Guide that books eligible for the 2008 -2009 award must have a copyright date of 2004 or later. This larger range does allow for us to really gage which books are really popular among our students. It would also allow for us to have some "blockbuster" titles in our first year's list (Twilight by Meyer, Uglies by Westerfeld, and The Lightning Thief by Riordan, just to name a few).
