This has been asked before so I will assume general interest for Elementary and 
Middle School. 
Speaking as a former member of the Newbery Committee, there are no nominee lists.
That said- if you are looking for 2005 books so that you will be well read when the 
announcements come here are a few ideas.
  Many public libraries create reading lists of mock Newbery titles.  
For a good how-to book, try Newbery and Caldecott Mock Elections by Kathleen 
Simonetta, Nancy Hackett and Linda Ward-Callaghan (ALA Editions, 2001, ISBN: 
0-838-98161-5, html), which provides everything for a 
mock election, including evaluation forms, tips for book discussions, guidelines 
for evaluating books, award-winning author biographies, reproducible voting sheets 
and more.

    Theresa Young Brantley, who was on the 1999 Newbery committee that chose Holes 
by Louis Sachar (Yearling, 2000, ISBN: 0-440-41480-6) as the winner, leads the Eva 
Perry Newbery Book Club, comprised of kids who read books published in the current 
year. Her site, contains a 
list of titles for consideration.
