I know I've seen a recommendation somewhere before, but I can't find it. I am teaching ELA to several grades and I'm wondering how many books is appropriate for various grade levels? I have some students that want to abandon books constantly. Does anyone have tips for that issue as well?

In regards to the first part of your question, here's a video that shows what might go into the book boxes, including numbers of books.  https://www.thedailycafe.com/content/book-boxes 

There really is no absolute number of books, but students need enough books to keep them engaged through a round of Daily 5.  For younger readers, whose books are shorter, that's going to mean more books.  Older students who are reading chapter books may ony need a few different kinds to keep their interest.  Changing books often enough to always have engaging titles is also important.
