Books of 2006, for the last time I promise

Lots of people are doing this over on the librarything community - list last year's books, and ask all and sundry if they have read them too. I've arranged them in decreasing order of popularity on LibraryThing, and cut off the most obscure ones, and the result is as follows (apologies for multiple authors where I have failed to adequately convert from LibraryThing cataloguing to reality):
