I've never done one of these weekly memes before, but several bloggers I follow have started doing Top Ten Tuesday from The Broke & The Bookish, and I thought it looked like fun! I'm sure I won't be doing these all the time, but if a Top Ten Tuesday catches my eye, then I'll jump in.
This week's topic is Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From. Since I didn't really feel like going through my bookshelves and Kindle to count everything, this is just an estimate. I'm very confident in the top five, but the rest are guesses :-) I thought it might be fun to give you a glimpse at my bookshelves as we go along. (If the pictures are too small, click on them, and they'll get bigger.)
|This is just the 1st shelf—the shelf below |
is about half full of Kingsbury books!
I just counted, and I have 44 Karen Kingsbury books. Goodness!
|Lori Wick & Dee Henderson. For|
a while, I kept all my Wick books.
Recently, though, I decided to just
keep my favorites and try to sell
the rest. So if you're in the market for
cheap Lori Wick books, check out
my half.com shop!
3. Susan May Warren—I liked the first few Warren books I read, but I didn't love them. Then I read Sons of Thunder. I was hooked, and now I read everything she writes. I just finished When I Fall in Love, and I absolutely could not put it down. (Review coming next week.) I can't wait for the next in the series!
|It doesn't look like many books, but|
The Chronicles of Narnia and The
Essential C.S. Lewis both contain
|I've loaned out several Dekker books. They go|
(of course) where the gaps are. If you're interested
in the book flowers, you can see how I
made them here.
5. Ted Dekker—My friend Jodi gave me Green, my first Ted Dekker novel, about 10 years ago. After devouring the Circle trilogy (now a quartet), I moved on to his other novels. Some I loved (Skin, Immanuel's Veins), some I loathed (Boneman's Daughters). I haven't read any of his newer novels ... or even all of the novels that are on this shelf!
|The end of Susan May Warren &|
most of my Robin Jones Gunn.
|I have two types of bookshelves:|
those that hold books I want to
display, and those that hold books
I keep for sentimental reasons. This
shelf holds the latter.
|The end of Karen Kingsbury, a few Denise Hunter,|
and the beginning of Susan May Warren. I've
loaned out a ton of my Hunter and Warren books.
|The Austen shrine.|
10. Dee Henderson—Henderson's O'Malley series remains is one of my all-time favorites. I also read some of her True Devotion series and enjoyed them. I haven't read any of her recent novels—I've read some negative reviews, and I don't want to spend money on books I may not like.
So there's my list. What about you? Leave your top ten in the comments, or leave a link to your own top ten post.
