Does Listening Count?


If I'm listening to an unabridged version of a book, does this count as "reading" the book?

According to HRH Julochka in a comment to me, unabridged counts.

Well, that's good enough for me!

I have now signed up to join the other ambitious bibliophiles in the 2009 year of reading dangerously challenge!

Since it's already May, and I'm crazy for committing even this much, I agree to read the following eight dangerous* books:

1. The Scarlet Letter - Nathanian Hawthorne
2. Gulliver's Travels - Johnathon Swift
3. The House of the Seven Gables - Nathaniel Hawthorne
4. The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde
5. Turn of the Screw (it's going to be a scary summer) - Henry James
6. Rabbit Run - John Updike
7. Tom Jones - Henry Fielding
8. Lady Chatterley's Lover - DH Lawrence

* my definition of dangerous: any classic literature that smacks of high school/college freshman must-reads that I still haven't read.

Julie, One opinion is enough for me! I'm off to sign up for 'my year of living dangerously (in my ear)'.
