There are 25 authors on this list because so many authors are tied for 5th, 7th, and 10th place. Goodreads makes this possible with this snazzy chart.
My first place author is no surprise. I’ve read more from Murakami and more about Murakami than any other author. I suspect I am leaving him in the last decade of my life, though. However, I am still teaching one of his novels, and I don’t think I’m done writing about him yet.
I’m starting to work through different works from Kevin Vanhoozer, Paul Ricouer, and David Foster Wallace this year, so they will more than likely define the next decade for me.
Here’s a list of the authors I’ve read the most from.
