There is no info about who decided or how, but here is another list to add to the "best of" lists that mark the end of the year. While I see others already writing about 2016 books, I am trying to keep focused on the dozens of 2015 books I still want to read. I am only breaking this for the books sent me to review,
Even after nearly 800 books read this year, I know I have missed many great titles. These lists and the soon-to-be-announced awards will help me fill in any reading gaps. And, of course, I know I have read books that will not top the lists, but they will remain happy memories of a year of reading nonetheless.
