Meeting the people who crafted the words so well that I fell in love
Even to the point of obsession. Most are dead, going with them
Every other story that could spring to life.
To converse with Jane Austen to ask why she made Willoughby
Into an insufferable rake when he was promising.
Not forgetting the brilliant mind of Charles Dickens with his
Gun firing wordy sentences and complex character formation.
I came across this tag from one of my two favourite Booktubers, Jen Campbell. It is a simple tag, just name an author for each letter of the alphabet.
Let us dive into it:
Jane Austen , Persuasion
Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
Julie Campbell, The Secret of the Mansion
Charles Dickens, Great Expectation
Dave Eggers, The Circle
Amanda Forester, A Wedding In Springtime
Philippa Gregory, The Boleyn Inheritance
Patricia Hermes, My Girl
Rachael Irving, Jamaican Gold: Jamaican Sprinters

Lynnette Kraft, Ingrid

Normally, I use Goodreads to keep track of the books that I remember reading. When I store such information on the best book media on earth, the system gives me in return statistics with little effort. An example is the most read authors from my list. I realize from that stat, I do not normally read more than one book from many authors. The only authors I have read more than three/four books is Jane Austen, that would make sense because she is my favourite author.
In addition, my most read authors corresponds with my most owned authors. Now I have a small physical library of not more than 100 books (not counting the borrowed never returned- my heart still cries for especially one copy), so it is easy to keep track of the authors. Some usually stay on my mind even if I read only one book for example Harper Lee but other times authors names are not on the tip of my tongue. It is only just a few years back, I made an effort to remember authors. It may sound stupid but my aim is always to recall the story and perhaps the book title. I guess this is why many of the books I read before I cannot recollect the author or title but mere fragments of the story.
Some of my most read/owned authors:
