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!
