It’s another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!
Today’s topic is Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy for My Personal Library. I’m editing that to reflect books I have in multiple formats — digital ebook, audiobook, and print! My reasons for having these in so many formats vary, but it’s mostly so I can read the book whenever and however I want. Sometimes audiobooks are the best use of my time.
10 Books I Own in Multiple Formats
the Kindred duology by Lori Benton: Mountain Laurel and Shiloh | I greatly enjoyed these in audio form — especially the accents!
the Parish Orphans of Devon series by Mimi Matthews: The Matrimonial Advertisement, A Modest Independence, A Convenient Fiction, and The Winter Companion | A set I just *needed* in all 3 formats. I’ve loved listening to these after my initial read-through.
Love’s Reckoning by Laura Frantz | I listened to this one recently, thanks to all the feedback on another TTT post.
Provenance by Carla Laureano | Carla’s novels *always* have to be on my shelf. Plus the audio was great!
Whose Waves These Are by Amanda Dykes | A gorgeous tale, I remember reading and listening to this one a few years ago.
When Twilight Breaks by Sarah Sundin | My absolute favorite by Sundin, and I’m in love with this cover.
Which of these have you read? Do you collect multiple copies of favorite stories?
Mimi Matthews has been a popular pick this week!

Mimi’s books deserve all the love! Have you read any of hers?
Thanks for dropping by!
Whose Waves These are is really good and certainly a book I should read again. I also really do need to catch up on Sarah’s titles. It’s been a while since I read anything by her. 🙂
Yes, I’m due for a reread of Amanda’s book — and I need to read her latest!
Sarah’s recent books are wonderful! Until Leaves Fall in Paris has a tie-in with the one I mentioned here, and her 2023 title is slightly related, too. Though they’re all standalones. I haven’t read her first couple of published series (I think you have? Or at least a few titles?), though I want to go back and catch them someday.
Interesting! I don’t think there are any books I own in multiple formats. As long as I have one way to read it, I’m good. I get wanting to read a book however you want to, though.
I understand happily reading in any form! I’m like that most of the time. Thanks for taking the time to visit & comment!
I still have not read Mimi Matthews although I plan to. I also don’t recall reading any of Lori Benton’s books. I have read the last three on your list and I really enjoyed When Twilight Breaks as well, incredibly well done.
Hello Cindy! I’m glad to hear Mimi Matthews is on your radar. She has written some fantastic stories. And I highly recommend Lori Benton’s books — I’d compare her closely to Laura Frantz in style and setting, in case you’re familiar with her.
SO glad to find another fan of When Twilight Breaks! It’s such a smart story.
I own several books in print, ebook, and audiobook too. Like you said, it makes it much easier to read a book when the mood hits. 😀
*high five* for being obsessive about certain favorites and having them within reach! 🙂 Happy TTT!
I like to keep print copies of my favorites in addition to e-book. I have the Parish Orphans of Devon books in both too! I have two print copies of Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson- the paperback has a gorgeous cover and I loan that one out, and the hardback that has the prequel novella included and is signed by the author.
How lovely to hear! And Edenbrooke is one I still haven’t read. It’s been on my TBR shelf way too long! I need to remedy that.
