I tend to feel that you can't really count listening to an audio book as reading it. (Wasn't there an episode of Sex and the City about this?) But if you listen to the entire unabridged version, you've done something with it, right?
So, how about listening to almost the entire unabridged version on CD, say, while you're on a long car trip? When you get home, you reserve the book from the library and finish reading it. Can you count it on your list of books read? How much do you have to read to count it? This reminds me of people who argue how much of Mass you can miss before it doesn't "count." Who cares. Point is you got the content, right?
Since I might not list it along with the other books I've read:
Down the Rabbit Hole by Peter Abrahams
What a fantastic mystery. So what, it's a young adult book. It's a pretty great story on its own. Personally, I find good young adult books to be good for helping me stay connected with my students. It's not so much staying "hip" because there's the Urban Dictionary for that, but for remembering where their heads are.
And because I am a sucker for a sequel or a series, I am pleased to say that this one is the latter. Book two, Behind the Curtain, is already available. Let's see if I can wait until the library gets it or if I'll buy it. Tomorrow.
