Orson Scott Card: 12. I only have read and own his books stemming from Ender's Game, but those alone still nearly take up a shelf.
Agatha Christie: 23. I love her books, so every time I see one of them in a thrift store, I buy it. Admittedly, my collection of Christie novels has gotten a bit out of control.
Eoin Colfer: 17. I fell in love with Artemis Fowl - all eight of his books - and then decided to branch out into other Colfer novels, heartily increasing the collection.
Ted Dekker: 28. Since he is one of my favorite authors, I have read nearly every book he has written. As soon as I see a new book coming out, I scramble to pre-order it.
Margaret Peterson Haddix: 9. One of my favorite series growing up was Shadow Children, so of course I had to buy and still own them all.
"Carolyn Keene": 16. As a child, I went through a Nancy-Drew-buying phase. I'm not sure how many of those books I actually read, but I now have a bunch just sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read someday.
Lois Lowry: 8. Between The Giver Quartet and her Newbery winners and nominees, I have accumulated quite a few of her books.
Max Lucado: 9. More out of control thrift-store purchasing. I love the books of his I have read and now have plenty on my shelf still to read.
J. K. Rowling: 7. Two words: Harry Potter.
Nicholas Sparks: 10. What can I say? I'm not exactly proud that he made this list, but I am a sucker for romance.
