top ten authors i’ve read the most works by
posted by soe 12:05 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl invites us to consider the authors we’ve read the most works by.

Hmm… Let’s see… These are probably not in accurate order, but they’re all authors I’ve read more of than Jane Austen, which is six novels, since I’ve only read her finished novels. I’m stopping now at 14, rather than 10, but I’ll probably add a couple more in the comments tomorrow after I have that head-smacking moment recollecting some important-to-me author I left off the list:

  1. “Carolyn Keene” or the conglomerate represented therein for all the Nancy Drew books I read.
  2. Dr. Seuss
  3. Richard Scarry (These top 3 I’m guessing at. Mum and Dad, you’re welcome to chime in in the comments if you think there are other authors we read more of when Josh & I were kids.)
  4. “Kathryn Kenney” and the other anonymous authors of the Trixie Belden series
  5. L.M. Montgomery (I used to buy Trixie Beldens and L.M. Montgomery titles at the Waldenbooks in the Meriden Square back when it was actually still a quadrangle.)
  6. Jasper Fforde
  7. J.K. Rowling and Robert Galbraith
  8. Louisa May Alcott
  9. Madeleine L’Engle
  10. Rainbow Rowell
  11. Barbara Kingsolver
  12. Cynthia Voigt
  13. Shannon Hale
  14. M.C. Beaton

How about you? Who are the authors you’ve read the most books by?
