I'm beginning to suspect that my brain is slowly turning into my favorite choice for breakfast - OATMEAL! I'm having a really hard time focusing and reading.... My normal 50 to 60 books per year has turned into more like 12 to 15. And that's counting audio books! So, this year's To-Be-Read Lists are simply lists and will very most likely carry over to 2016 and (ahem) 2017. But I'm not giving up on this pre-menopausal, sleep-deprived brain just yet! (It's always good to keep a sense of humor about these things.)
