Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Own the Most Books From

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week features a book related topic that gives you the opportunity to spotlight your Top Ten.

Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From

Goodness, I know the top 5 of who I own the most of. I started to read those authors when I was a teenager...so back in the 90's.  I need to go count the other ones to add to the list. Should be fun to see. 

It's safe to say that when I find an author I like/love, I will buy all of their books if I can.

I think I've read almost every book he has ever written and own almost all of them.

She was one of the first authors I read when I started reading Christian Historical Fiction. I have almost all of them.

She was the first author I read in Christian Fiction and just loved the stories...again I think I own almost, if not all of her books.

 Like with Janette Oke and Tracie Peterson, I started reading Lori's books when got into the genre.

 Lori Wick was another of the authors I started following when I was younger and looked forward to her books.

I own all of her books to date. Can't wait for her next in the series!

All of them again. :-) Love them! And I just discovered her last year.

I just discovered Lisa's books last year as well and have just dove into them.

I've only read three of her books, but I own a few more waiting to be read. I really enjoyed her writing.

With each book 800+- 1,000+ pages, I feel like I own even more of her books they I do.

With over half of my library in storage, I can't count all of my books to add more authors. I know there are a few more authors I own with quite a few books, but my mind is not wanting to recall them right now.

Who are your Top Ten Authors?

Woah! Those Diana Gaboldon books sound like they'd be a real challenge to get through! 1,000 pages?! Phewf, I think I'd collapse, actually...i'm such a sook when it comes to huge books. I only own one Janette Oak but I can't actually remember if I read it or not! I think I won it at Sunday School once upon a time. Eep. Memories! Here's my TTT!

That's a good point about a book's length and complexity. It doesn't seem too fair that one author's 3000+ word trilogy should be edged out of a list like this by your juvenile series collection, aye? I myself wasn't too happy with how my Tenner turned out, because there were books which I thought had a lot more weight than the ones that made it--but which lost out in a numbers game. =/

I have several of these on mine as well (Janette Oke, Lori Copeland, Tracie Peterson) and also own several from Lori Wick - she was probably the first author I read whose books were more "adult."

Yay for Lisa Bergren shout-out! Love her stories, too. :)

Cait, They are big, but the story carries you through like they are less! I love Janette Oke books. They have such a wonderful sweetness to them. :-)

Thanks for visiting!

Enbrethiliel, I didn't really think of it that way, but I can see your point. I own 8 of her books and they sure can fill up a shelf greater then 10-11 of other books. With the huge page count, it seems that her books look like a lot more of them then there is. :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

Rissi, Many memories with those authors! Lori Wick and Lori Copeland had a little bit older feel to them. They were fun to read as a teenager. :-)

And Lisa's books, they blossomed on my shelf this past year. Wonderful stories!!

Thanks for stopping by!
