Ten Authors Crowding My Bookshelves

July 29, 2014 Top Ten Tuesday 22

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is:


This was a fun topic – from which authors do I own the most books?  Fun, because until I started looking at my shelves and Kindle and Audible account, I didn’t know all of the authors who would make this list.  My rules for making this list – I didn’t include any ARCs, and I did include e-books and audiobooks.  If I own a book in various formats, I counted all of them.

1-4) Paperbacks of A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast For Crows

      This is the Harry Potter “Signature Edition” set, published by Bloomsbury. The books came in a really cute box, too.

      They look neat, because so far, they are untouched! I keep resolving to read them, but it hasn’t happened yet.

      Thank you, Chrissi! I don’t normally like to have duplicates of physical books, but that paperback of Pivot Point is personalized, so I can’t give it up.

      Thank you, Deb! This post took more time to put together than I’d anticipated. 🙂

      I love those Hunger Games paperbacks, too. I certainly didn’t NEED them, but I HAD to buy them. These are the Scholastic UK paperbacks.

      It’s easy to forget, isn’t it? I’m sure there are some authors that I missed, too, especially because I have a lot of Kindle books.

      Thanks! I still have not read the HP books yet. When I decided to buy a set last year, there were so many options to choose from!

      I love the look of those covers, but the only problem is that they are so easily damaged. In fact, the first set I received I had to return because they were so banged-up. The foil has a thin plastic covering over it, and it was separated in lots of places. (Plus, there were lots of bent pages and covers that happened during the shipping process. The replacement set wasn’t perfect, but I decided not to complain again. 🙂

      Thanks, Kel. My background is in Finance, so I HAD to do it like this. 🙂
