*Repeated viewings/readings are included if I read/saw the movie/book at a time when I could not appreciate it (e.g. reading All Quiet on the Western Front when I was 12 and again when I was 19) or if I read/saw the book/movie in a new context. Multiple viewings of theater productions (even ones with the same cast) are included as performances change one day to the next.
