When you read a good book by a popular author do you go on to read all their books? What's the most you've ever read?

Jodi Picoult for me. I've read all her books, 23 in total, and look forwad to each new year's release.
I think it would be Robert Jordan. His Wheel of Time series was 13 books, although the final two were written by Brandon Sanderson after Jordan's death. It was still Robert Jordan's story, even though Brandon Sanderson wrote the words.
Did you find them as good as the RJ ones?

I found them to be different. Matt was one of my favourite characters, and it must have been Brandon's too because Matt really came to life under Brandon's care. Unfortunately, Brandon didn't do the last big battle any justice at all. It felt like he was writing in autopilot, I felt like I was reading a screenplay instead of a novel. In all fairness, Brandon brought all the characters to life more than Jordan did, but his flow in the story was not there. So it went both ways for me.
Probably Terry Pratchett. Off the top of my head I don't know how many of his I've read. Maybe 15 or so.
Three books from the ''Left Behind'' series.

Very good may I say kept me gripppped!

I didn't have the money to get the rest, and at that time I was reading my son needed a lot of my attention....so I told myself, maybe later.
p.s. There are 12 books, and were written by Dr Tim LaHaye and Jerry B.Jenkins (based on Christian Eschatology). Also the new movie with Nick Cage, is on the 1st book of these.

Robin Hobb is my favourite author. I've read 16 of her books and her new series is just coming out now so I can't wait!
Probably Cecelia Ahern - love her books!
Katherine Kerr x 16 and David & Leigh Eddings - also 16!
Robert Jordan I've got as far as 10, have 11 & 12 to read.

Oh oh I have a Katherine Kerr series that I'm meaning to try! I'll take this as a recommendation.

Helen Forrester. Somewhat depressing but very factual. Loved them all. And, Ruth Parkes (or Parks).
Colin Dexter. His 'Inspector Morse' novels. Followed by Thomas Hardy, as 'Far From Madding Crowd' was set book for Senior. Read all his others' as well, as enjoyable, but dark. Enjoyed Delderfield . Also the 'Swann Saga', but can't remember author!
I have read all of James Lee Burke's books (I think the total is round about 15/16). He writes beautifully and so descriptively. He writes really good thrillers but his form of writing is magical in the descriptions of locations. There are many authors whose books I have continued to read through the years but I think James Lee Burke is the one writer I have followed religiously with each book he produces.
I think it would be Nicholas Sparks, I've read like 7-8 books.
I like James Patterson books and have read quite a few of his crime/thriller books. I have also read all of Anthony Horowitz adult fiction. I like to read a lot of non fiction, but when I feel like a bit of fiction, these are the authors I usually read.
Anne Rice - my favourite author of all time - 25. J.R. Ward - 20. Anne Bishop - 14. And Charlaine Harris - 16. Though if you've read the same book more than once, does that count as more? :)
