Top 10 Tuesday: Authors I Own The Most


We're counting our books and listing our most-owned authors for this week's Top Ten Tuesday. Because I am lazy, I only included authors of fiction and nonfiction books. The graphic fiction lives in a different part of the house and I simply couldn't be arsed to count twice. Were it not for my laziness, I'm sure the list would look quite different -- although Terry Pratchett would remain firmly at the head of the list!

  1. Terry Pratchett (47)
  2. Thomas Hardy (15)
  3. Ursula K. Le Guin (15)
  4. Patricia McKillip (13)
  5. Sheri S. Tepper (13)
  6. L.M. Montgomery (12)
  7. Charles Dickens (12)
  8. Chrisopher Moore (11)
  9. Bill Bryson (9)
  10. J.R.R. Tolkien (8)

So, I think it's pretty clear I enjoy fantasy.

Also, how did I not know about Gollancz's The Discworld Collector’s Library? All those beautiful new hardback editions! *Swoons*


As much as I love the Discworld books, I've always regretted the lack of cohesion to my collection -- a mishmash of random Josh Kirby-illustrated UK mass market paperbacks and Paul Kidby, etc US trades/hardcovers. I like my series to be very matchy-matchy, you know.
