I wish this site recorded that we have read the books rather than ‘consumed’ them….
The definition of consume in the Macquarie Dictionary (Australian) is (1) to destroy or expend by use; use up (2) to eat or drink up; devour (3) to destroy as by decomposition or burning and so on. Apart from devour in a metaphorical sense, none of these definitions remotely apply to reading or listening to music for that matter. Okay, just call me a pedant.
This site has a ‘sister’ site called All Consuming. It covers EVERYTHING… books, films, music, food, and loads of other things, thus I’m sure the makers of the list chose ‘consuming’ because it covered everything…. read, listened to, ate, know of, etc…. I think it covers everything quite well.
