Top Ten (eight) Authors I Own the Most Books From

I'm still working on my personal library and it's really coming along.  A few years ago I'm not sure I could have said much for it. Years of my family having thousands of books gave me excuses not to by buy books. I'm so glad though that I've started building up my library so when I have kids of my own I'll be able to share my love of reading with them. I've only included my top eight as there are only eight authors that I have more than one of their books.

  1. C.S. Lewis- Eight books. I have all of his Chronicles of Narnia series but two copies of my favorite- The Horse and His Boy. :)
  2. Agatha Christie- Seven books. Various titles. :)
  3. Jane Austen- I have all of her books including her unfinished works at the end of my copy of Persuasion
  4. J.R.R. Tolkien- Five books. I have a copy of The Hobbit, two copies of The Two Towers and one copy each of The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King
  5. William Shakespeare- Four books. I have a copy of a collection of Shakespeare stories and then one copy each of The Merchant of Venice, Much Ado About Nothing and The Taming of the Shrew.
  6. Charles Dickens- Three books. I have David Copperfield, Barnaby Rudge and Our Mutual Friend
  7. Brian Jacques- Two books. I have Mariel of Redwall and The Sable Queen.
  8. Mark Twain- Two books. I have Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer.
