Dan Brown tops 'most-donated to charity' list

4th July 2011

Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown has topped a list of the most-donated authors to Oxfam's charity shops in the last 12 months.

The bestselling writer, whose five novels have sold over 100 million copies, was the most-donated author to Oxfam for the third year in succession, ahead of Ian Rankin in second and Jeremy Clarkson in third.

Fourth on the list was Stephenie Meyer, whose Twilight books have received an enormous boost in popularity following the big-budget film adaptations, with Alexander McCall Smith in fifth and Stephen King sixth.

Oxfam's trading director David McCullough said the authors on the most-donated list should not be viewed as unpopular, as it proves a significant volume of their work is being sold in the first place and public enthusiasm for their novels remains high.

'We're really grateful to everyone who donates their books to Oxfam, and it's fun to see how our most-donated list changes year by year,' he added.
