In UK Hips Don't Lie by Shakira featuring Wyclef Jean was in the top 5 hits. Accepted, directed by Steve Pink, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Godless by Ann Coulter was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Reader, I Married Him. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War or Armadillo Run.
