Read just over half, many of them in my promiscuous youth, and some of those (The Count of Monte Cristo, Dune, Watership Down and The Hobbit) several times. After I judging the Clarke Award in 1999 and 2000 my reading rate collapsed, which helps account for lack of attention to this century's publications.
