Ten Eleven Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is authors that I own the most books from. Eleven because there’s a four-way tie in there. These are my physical books only, as I didn’t feel like wading through the nook.
1. Jane Austen- 5. Everything but Emma.
2. Fyodor Dostoevsky- 5. What can I say, I love Russians.
3. N. K. Jemisin- 5. I’ve only read three, but that will be remedied soon.
4. David Mitchell- 5. I can’t wait for it to be six.
5. Neil Gaiman- 6. I’ve been kind of cold on Gaiman the past few years, I’m actually surprised it is so many.
6. Jo Nesbo- 6. I’m currently reading my way through all the Harry Hole books, slowly filling in the gaps.
7. George R. R. Martin- 6. A Song of Ice and Fire in paperback, and a hardcover of Dreamsongs that I snagged in a used bookstore for a buck.
8. Tamora Pierce- 8. The Alanna series and the Immortals series. Well, well, well read.
9. Patricia Briggs- 10. I just keep buying Mercy Thompson books for some reason.
10. Lynn Flewelling- 10. All the Nightrunner books and the Tamir books. If I could only keep ten books from my collection it would probably be these.
And, by far the most owned author in my collection:
11. Terry Pratchett- 31 (ish?) Until a few years ago, I was keeping up with the Discworld books. Somewhere at my parents’ house are all the books through Night Watch (or possibly Going Postal), along with the first three Tiffany Aching books. I keep meaning to get back to it one day, but who knows if I ever will. I’m unreasonably proud of owning those all in order, though.
Takeaways: My favorite authors don’t write nearly enough, and also I own way less Murakami than I thought I did.
