I am afraid I must agree with Janet. There IS a tendency to confuse the two. But, I suspect that even if we set up a special board strictly for the Novel read, the adaptations would still sneak it. We really can't help it. When you have a production of the quality of P&P2 of your favorite novel, how can you NOT let it color your perception of the novel?
We are forever ruined. :-(
Seriously though, I have always looked upon the adaptations as just another carefully considered opinion. (P&P0 doesn't count!) I know that the opinions and thoughts expressed here at Pemberley have forever altered my perception of the novel. I look upon that as a good thing. Wouldn't you agree? :-)
