Whose books do you own the most of?


  1. Heh, we have the same #1! I actually don't own very much Lewis, since I let my sister keep our Narnia set.

  2. Wow! I didn't even know some of these authors had that many books. I need to read more of Diana Wynne Jones' books.

    1. She has tons more I still haven't read or own. She was prolific!

  3. Wow, what are the 18 C.S. Lewis books?? Do you have multiples?

    1. I don't have any multiples.

      They are:
      Narnia 1-7
      Out of the Silent Planet
      That Hideous Strength
      Till We Have Faces
      Mere Christianity
      The Screwtape Letters
      The Great Divorce
      The Four Loves
      The Abolition of Man
      The Pilgrim's Regress
      The Problem of Pain

    Diana Wynne Jones is an author I wish were on my list, too. I loved the first four Chrestomanci books, and I'm really not sure why I didn't continue reading the rest of her novels.

    Our lists do have C.S. Lewis in common . . . thanks to The Chronicles of Narnia giving him an automatic edge! =P

    1. Oh you should definitely read the rest of DWJ beginning with the two Chrestomanci books you haven't read yet. Love that series!

  5. Wow, those are quite a few books in a series. I'm wondering about the C.S. Lewis books too. My biggest is J.K. Rowlings, mostly because I purchased the box set with the new covers illustrated by Kazu Kibuish.

    1. I have that set of HP books too! My daughter has the original hardcover set, but I wasn't counting the books that belong just to her.

      I listed the Lewis book's I own in the comment reply to Kate above. No multiples there either. :)

  6. I really need to read more Diana Wynne Jones. I feel like my magical/fantasy reading is really deficient! I'd love to know more about Elizabeth Wein's books. I loved Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire, but haven't read her earlier works at all. Nice list!

    1. Wein's early stuff is great too. Where else are you going to find Ancient Ethiopian historical fiction? It has all the intrigue and emotion of CNV and Rose too.

  7. Bonus points to you for showing off book 5 of HP for Rowling. That is my favorite book by her and in that series.
    Great list!

    1. Book 5 is my favorite too! I love how despite V's return at end of book 4, Rowling made this about typical villainy we see every day in real life.

  8. Oh look, tons of amazing authors I still need to read! Sigh. (Somedaaaaaaaay...)
