Ten (or maybe more!) Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By

Let me tell you a story about this week's prompt at That Artsy Reader Girl, because it is fun.

Much of the data I came up with surprised me -- I didn't realize how quickly some authors stacked up, while I often wildly overestimated what percentage of my favorites' canon I'd read; many names I'd expected to see did not crack the top ten. There might have to be a follow-up post at some point.
