Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I Own in Multiple Formats

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?

  1. 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.

    • I understand happily reading in any form! I’m like that most of the time. Thanks for taking the time to visit & comment!

  2. 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.

    • *high five* for being obsessive about certain favorites and having them within reach! 🙂 Happy TTT!

  3. 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.
