This year may have been atypical, of course. (Though have you not read Glasshouse as well?)

I used to collect DW novelizations, but I gave them away ages ago. The only one I'm sure I've read was The Leisure Hive.

Interesting that it is ahead in the poll - certainly one of the better ones.

And probably easier to find than others. When I was a kid and collecting them, the only place in town to get them was the used bookstore (which sold a few new books as well). I'm wondering now if the proprietor was a fan.

The only comics one I've read that you haven't is Diary of a Teenage Girl - and I think you can safely skip that!

Oh, all right; I have also read the two GGK books, the Temeraire books, A CLASH OF KINGS, and I skimmed through STARDUST. Which, out of the list you present, is really pretty pathetic! Oh, and GLASSHOUSE. Still. :)

There are a few there that I plan to read.

I ticked Mabinogian & Gilgamesh though I doubt I read those particular translations, and note some near misses eg Alexander McCall Smith and good intentions eg Vinge. Interesting reading list!

I'm stunned that you read so many books, mainly because I know (mutual Friends) that you have a Life (job, family w/kids). Do you not need to sleep much?

Also, I read some of the first Who novels published in the U.S., I have no idea which ones they were. Okay, though.
