Repeat Authors

Posted by carol
In conjunction with this month's poll on, we asked recipients of the registered book clubs newsletter if they have ever selected more than one work by an author. We share the top five repeat authors below, along with some book club members commentary. If you'd like to take part in the poll, it's open until the end of April. Many thanks to everyone who sent us their repeat author picks! Does your group have any others to share? Please let us know in the comments section.

Jodi Picoult
Sue Monk Kidd
Willa Cather
Sandra Dallas
Anne Tyler

"Our book club has read a number of Lorna Landvik's books: Patty Jane's House of Curl, Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons and Oh My Stars (one of my favorites). Next month we'll be reading The View from Mount Joy. We have also read both of Sue Monk Kidd's books and Anita Diamant's The Red Tent and The Last Days of Dogtown. Most of the time our book selection is by recommendation or the books talked about on your site, but Lorna Landvik's books are probably a favorite among some of our members." --Janet

"Our book club is the French River Readers, and this is our sixth year! We read all types of books, but we've only re-read a few authors. One is a Minnesota author William Kent Krueger, who writes a series set in northern Minnesota, very close to where we all live; most of us have actually read his entire work, and we've discussed two of them in book club. We also have read multiple books by Nevada Barr, who sets her stories in national parks. This month we are reading our second book by C. S. Lewis: The Screwtape Letters. Earlier we read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." --Carol
