So because I've got so much Free Time, I've collated everyone's favourite authors as mentioned in the intros. Those with 3 or more mentions are below, followed by the complete list. 
Favourite individual books may follow (on Monday, most likely). [Exciting preliminary result! The Perilous Gard is mentioned 3 times.]
