The panel on The Real (Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry-Housley) discuss if bookworms are a dying breed. A recent study by San Diego State University says 1/3 of high school sophomores in the United States haven’t read a book (hard copy or digital) in the last year.

What are some of your favorite audiobooks? I only got into them pretty recently but have been looking for some new ones.

Same. Partially because I moved so much that for the longest time I didn’t even have my books, and now they aren’t unpacked. And partially bc how cool is it to take a book with you while you’re driving or doing dishes or ____?

Well, that's a horribly depressing statistic. Yes, I'm basically never not reading something.

I'm in the middle of so many books. My spot on the couch is surrounded by six. 😂

Same. I prefer to read a novel over just about anything else.

it's a sad statistic, but i feel like it's a;ways kind of been that way? i knew so many people in hs and college who hated reading books and they never read anything that wasn't assigned by the school. and even then they'd find summaries and notes instead of reading the full thing.

i randomly decided last week to put a bunch of books about werewolves on hold. i'm happy i did this because:

there are a bunch of children's nonfiction books about them. which means the books are shorter and easy to read. which means i'm catching up to my book goal!

all or almost all of the ones i checked out were written by women. so i'm also catching up with my goal of having my books be at least half by women!
