Ten Five Auto-Buy Authors
So.... I don't actually buy too many books. At least, not anymore. Every so often I'll "find" a new-to-me author and fall in love and buy their whole backlist, like I did with Stephen King, Michael Crichton, and Edward Abbey, but mostly I'll buy one or two books from an author then move on. And I get books as gifts, and they're not always part of a larger collection. So these are my top five auto-buy authors!
1. Jan Karon. I even pre-order her stuff. And I don't pre-order anyone else! (Her next book is due out in September!!! SO. EXCITED.)
2. Stephen King. Kinda. He was a definite auto-buy for quite a while, but I must admit that I haven't bought his latest half dozen or so. But there was a couple of years when I went on a King buying blitz and bought 40 or so.
3. Michael Crichton. Was. But he was still alive when I "discovered" him, and he was an auto-buy after that. So now the hubby and I own every single one. Even the screenplay Westworld.
4. Megan Shepherd. LOVED The Madman's Daughter, met her just after Her Dark Curiosity was published, and auto-bought A Cold Legacy. Proof that her books are awesome: I bought the hardcovers even though they have deckled edges. And I don't care at all for deckled edges.
5. J.K. Rowling: the Harry Potter books. When these were being released, I auto-bought them all in hardcover, within a week of their releases. Haven't bought her new adult titles, though.
