A: Author You’ve Read the Most Books From
I’d had the thought that, in order to keep myself from being too perfunctory about it, I’d avoid talking about books or authors I’d discussed in previous years.
So I sat awhile in uffish thought, before consulting GoodReads, my library checkout history, and my bookshelves.
All this to find that some things don’t change, and no one’s managed to shift my all-time favorites from being all-time favorites. Especially not the champion of them all: C.S. Lewis.
From the Chronicles of Narnia, to his apologetics, to the Cosmic Trilogy, to his poetry and essays – I’ve read some 27 books of Jack’s, and still have a few more volumes of letters and essays awaiting me on my shelf.
Runners-up include Neil Gaiman (15.5, if Good Omens is ½ and the 10 sections of Sandman as separate volumes); Dorothy Sayers (13); Jim Butcher (11.5 at present); Orson Scott Card (11); Shakespeare (11 plays I’ve read; more that I’ve seen); and J.K. Rowling (10).
