Road Trip Wednesday #160: How Many Books Do You Read?

Welcome to our 160th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic is: About how many books do you read in a year? Do you want to read more? Or, less?

Road Trip Song of the Week: "You're My Baby" by Robin Thicke

Next week's topic: The list of top baby names in 2012 had us talking about naming characters. How do you decide on names? Would you ever name a character after a friend/family member/ex?

  2. Here's mine!

  3. Here's my response!

  4. Here's my post! Great question, especially as the year winds down!

  5. Usually it's between 200-250 (up from 100-150) but this year? I'm at 375 and still reading... I'll have a wrap-up post, or more, in January. Back to the books!

  6. Here's mine:

  7. Usually 50-70 for me. I cannot imagine how on earth I'd read 375 books!

  8. More than 80 books this year for me (including some adult novels and some craft books)..I do have quite a long commute :D
    Why I read 72 YA books this year

  9. I've read 108 this year, and my goal was 100. I counted everything (rereads, audio books, little novellas, etc), but I think even if I read 50 I would be pretty happy!

  10. Here's mine

  11. Jumping on the bandwagon late, too!

  12. I'm a bit late tonight! Snowstorm+sickness=crazyweek
