verdict, please

Hello my dears,

So last night, my boss took me (unexpectedly) to a staged and annotated Poetry Month reading of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, which was one of the books on my list. The reading was awesome, and surely much more than I would have gotten out of the book if I'd read it alone. But the question is, does this count for my list? I sincerely doubt I will find a need or desire to revisit it in the next little while.

Thanks,

Moonrat

I'd count it. Especially since you got more out of it than reading alone.

Wow, that sounds amazing. I agree, it definitely counts.

I feel the same way when I've listened to an audiobook, and then don't feel right entering it into my (finished) fiction log, because I'm not sure I've processed it as carefully as if I'd read it. In your case, though, it sounds like you got much more out of it this way, not less.
