Top Ten Words in Place of 2016

Many of us are still reflecting on the events of 2016, and in that vein I decided it’s not too late to do a round-up of our top ten Words in Place posts published in 2016. This doesn’t mean they necessarily got the most hits; a few older posts have remarkable traction (anything to do with a certain Boy Who Lived, turkeys, Syria, or yoga). But they do represent the most read posts published during the calendar year. Read on to find out which posts had the furthest reach, perused by readers from Australia to Zimbabwe. And once again, thanks to all who participated in Words in Place in 2016.–JLH
