I’m excited to participate in The Broke and the Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday for the first time! I hope the topic this week (ten authors whose books I own the most of) will provide a fun insight into my bookshelves and reading life!
I have my stuff together more than this Christmas-time photo
might indicate. It was taken months ago!
Counting down, here are the ten authors I own the most books from with many ties:
Stephen Covey (2) I’m a business school graduate. Enough said!
Geraldine Brooks (2) People of the Book and Year of Wonders were both amazing.
Barbara Kingsolver (2) I haven’t read The Poisonwood Bible yet, but I really liked Small Wonder, a collection of post-9/11 essays.
Frank McCourt (3) I first read Angela’s Ashes in high school and fell in love. I quickly purchased Teacher Man and ‘Tis when they were published and mourned McCourt’s passing.
William Shakespeare (3) Why not?
Isabel Allende (3) – One of my favorite authors, I have Zorro, Portrait in Sepia and Daughter of Fortune.
Jon Krakauer (4) I will never climb Everest or do many of the things he’s done and written about, but I love Krakauer’s writing style.
Laura Ingalls Wilder (4) – Obviously, I should have more. I do have three Wilder-related books on my shelves, though.
J.K. Rowling (8) The Harry Potter series, of course, and The Casual Vacancy have (and will always have) treasured spots on my bookshelves.
Fraggle Rock Series (15) We found these for Claire at a garage sale. We all enjoy reading them!

I didn’t count my books, because I’m too lazy for that, but went on a ‘how much of a shelf do their books take up’ approach. I think the biggest is a shelf and half. 🙂
Funny! I wouldn’t have counted without the picture on my phone.
J.K Rowling is one of my top ones too. I have all the Harry Potters, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Plus I have The Cuckoo’s Calling on my kindle- if you count that as JK.
My other major one is probably Jodi Picoult, I have all of hers except the one she wrote with her daught, that may actually be more than the Rowling books- I haven’t counted.
I would totally count The Cuckoo’s Calling if I owned it!
I purge my shelves so frequently that I was surprised that I own multiple books from more than 10 authors!
