US author Dan Brown's books are donated to charity Oxfam more than any other.
It is the third year in a row that the writer's novels - which include 'The Da Vinci Code', a tome that was third in the charity's best seller list this year compared to 10th in 2010 - have topped the list.
Ian Rankin - who was last year's best selling author - and 'Top Gear' presenter Jeremy Clarkson are second and third respectively in the most donated list.
Clarkson entered at number 10 last year, becoming the first non-fiction author to ever feature in the table.
