The Authors Who Dominate My Shelves
Frank Wilson at Books, Inq. reported a while back on an interesting list we could compile: Those Authors Who Dominate Your Shelves. The rules for the list are simple; if we have five books or more by or about an author, we include that person. Here’s my list (in alphabetical order): Douglas Adams Margaret Atwood Jane Austen Maeve Binchy Geoffrey Chaucer Charles Dickens George Eliot James Lee Burke Agatha Christie Raymond Chandler Robertson Davies Dick Francis Sue Grafton Henry James P.D. James Margaret Laurence Naguib Mahfouz Ngaio Marsh L.M. Montgomery Alice Munro Robert B. Parker Sara Paretsky Ellery Queen Ruth Rendell J.K. Rowling Dorothy L. Sayers William Shakespeare Rex Stout J.R.R. Tolkien Anthony Trollope Anne Tyler Evelyn Waugh Minette Walters Laura Ingalls Wilder These are also the authors I re-read frequently. Now, if only I had all the money to buy all the books I’d like to have, the list would be significantly longer.
