Thank you Goodreads for keeping these stats for me, haha. Although making this list wasn’t quite as straightforward as I thought it was going to be…
Top Ten Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From
- Haruki Murakami with a grand total of 23 books!
I mean, wooooww. And I haven’t even read all of his work yet, by far…
- J.K. Rowling: 20 books
Technically, 21 books, if we include Robert Galbraith. Also, there’s a bunch of Harry Potter rereads. And there’s going to be more rereads in the future.
- Carlos Ruiz Zafón: 9 books
I finally read all of his books. More translations, please!
- Neil Gaiman: 6 books
I want to read so much more of his work.
- John Green: 6 books
- Douglas Adams: 5 books
Hitchhiker’s Guide, need I say more.
- Banana Yoshimoto: 5 books
- Laini Taylor: 4 books
- Darren Shan: 4 books
Actually, this should be 12 books, and actually, half of them were also childhood rereads…
- Natsuo Kirino: 4 books
*still waits impatiently for In*
I’ve also got three honourable mentions, that I felt didn’t quite belong on the list above…:
- Paul van Loon: 7 books
Why am I putting him here at the bottom when I’ve read 7 books? Mostly because I read all of these books during my childhood and haven’t picked any up since then. I loved his books but I’m not sure if they will still be as enjoyable now that I’m older, so I’m afraid to reread…
- H.G. Wells: 5 books
He’s down here because it’s cheating; half of what I read were short stories.
- Annie M.G. Schmidt: 5 books
Same situation as Mr. Van Loon, although I definitely want to reread Schmidt’s books! Her books are wonderful.
