December is often a hectic month, ending as quickly as it begins. Proof of this is that it’s somehow already December 4th! Perhaps blame can be assigned to any number of holidays and celebrations often competing with end-of-the year deadlines.
Despite the busyness, there’s one constant that truly does make this a fantastic time of year for readers: “end-of-the-year” and “best book” lists!
