How many books by Ernest Hemingway do you own and have read?

Ernest Hemingway is considered by some people as one of the greatest writers of all times. My husband and I are avid readers but we don’t see it. I must admit I have not read all his books. Only three of them.

The Sun Also Rises

For Whom the Bell Tolls

A Farewell to Arms

We are of the opinion that there are plenty of writers who are better writers than Ernest Hemingway. However that did not stop us from acquiring some of his books. We own quite a few of them. I started collecting books even before I got married and I acquired those three Hemingway’s books at that time.

From the picture below, you can see the three volumes to your right on the second shelf from the top.


Easton Press published a 20-book collection of Ernest Hemingway books a few years ago and the books are still listed in their catalog. I decided to buy them for my library. Here they are on the top shelf of one of my bookcases. On the second shelf, you’ll see two books with purple or rather blue cover lying flat. Those are the two proofs of my latest book, “The Wentworth Legacy” which is now on pre-order on Kindle.


Here are the names of the books by Ernest Hemingway on the top shelf.

For Whom the Bell Tolls

The Sun Also Rises

A Farewell to Arms

The Old Man and The Sea

To Have and Have Not

The Dangerous Summer

Across the River and Into The Trees

Islands In The Stream

Winner Take Nothing

A Moveable Feast

The Garden of Eden

True at First Light

In Our Time

The Fifth Column

The Torrents of Spring

Death in the Afternoon

Green Hills of Africa

The Snows of Kilimanjaro

By-Line Ernest Hemingway

Men Without Women


I hope someday I will be able to read them all. Maybe I will change my mind about my opinion of him as a writer. For now, I’m reading books by other authors besides writing some of my own books.


Until next time. Keep on reading.
