  • Environmental loss .

    The only produce of a tv thats harmful to the environment is that it uses electricity, books however, use paper, in wich one series of books worldwide would take around a small forest to produce, depending on how far the series goes, it could lead to others, such as harry potter and the philosopher stone leading all the way to the 7th book, and would then inspire other writers to make more books then uses more paper.

  • Yes tv is better than books.

    Tv is relaxing and entertaining. Books are long and boring all you do is look at words. Basically books are just converted into film to make it more exciting and interesting. Some people are not good at imagining so tv is better for those people. Some people don't like commercials but if the kid does not understand what happened on tv the commercials give them time to think about what happened.

  • Books are fun

    Books are better than television because we can’t bring a television on the bus or the classroom, but, we can bring a book. Books are a lot cheaper than televisions, televisions are expensive. Books can also make us use our imagination. We can imagine what the characters look like, but on the television they might turn out the complete opposite. Books are very educational by helping us read, write sensational stories and spell terrific words. Books also help us learn great facts. They can teach us new words. They also give us as much time as you like to take in what is on the page, but the television can’t stop for people to understand what is going on. Books can provide more details and information than television programs due to expensive airtime. Do you want the electricity bill to go up? That’s what will happen if you watch too much television. Books are much cheaper and they are better for the environment.

  • Tv is better

    Stop saying the same points....... Dum dum..... Because books are boring and TV has all different stuff like footy and cartoons. And you can watch the news so you can see whats happening around the world and books are like just really really really boring like so boring and TV has lots of colours and they talk to you.

  • Television is better than books.

    For this topic, television doesn't mean watching entertaining programs. It can also mean watching educational programs such as documentaries.
    Televisions are much better than books, as people nowadays are much more interested in visual things than texts. Adolescents would learn from educational documentaries far better than reading a whole book about a certain topic.
    Also, televisions are easy to access, and convenient; even for those that are disabled. For instance, it would be much better to hear an information if you can't see things, and it would be much better to visually see explanations than reading pages of texts.

  • Television is far better than reading books

    Television is a good source of entertainment. It is also a good pastime for adults. It gives us knowledge about various plants and dangerous animals and the way to escape them. It gives us knowledge about the cultural, historical and geographical stats of many countries. It also removes the laziness and stress of our body. Not only this world it this us knowledge about many galaxies, planets, stars, universe etc. Though it hampers our study but it is far better than reading books

  • You shouldnt get everything handed to you on a silver platter or you'll forget how to work a stove

    Calling television better then books is like saying that it is better to have a chef make your every mean then for you to make it yourself. Soon enough you won't know how to cook for yourself and you wont have any imagination to make something edible. If you watch T.V as a substitute for books, all the images you create in your mind with you imagination are just, given to you. You will never be able to conjure them for yourself as well as you could. And you learn so much about writing just from reading it. without knowing it you become a better writer when you read books, you draw from the experience and skill of the author and apply it to your won.

  • Television is not better than books.

    While TV makes it maybe easier to turn your brain off and not care about anything, the fact of the matter is that books are much better than TV. Books allow for much richer character development than TV ever could hope for. For those with an active imagination, books allow one to jump right into the world.

  • No, books don't have commercials.

    This is not meant to be a flip remark. When you read a book the intent of the book is not to entertain you and then periodically break in and attempt to sell you something. Television has different levels of intellectual content that you can choose from, however it is supported by advertising and many of the most popular shows are nothing more than low level entertainment with high level advertising.

  • Books are better than TV

    Because books can open up your imagination and they are more factional than TV.TV shows inappropriate things and how to be disrespectful to your parents.TV also wastes your time because all you are doing is watching mindless shows.Books can always change,for example someone can imagine the main character's houses is big but some people can imagine it differently.Books can also tech you valuable lessons that TV can't teach you.

  • Of course not!

    To be honest. Television is just damaging societies brains and social skills. Books on the other hand, inspire you do to new things. They teach you more life lessons, and you can even imagine your own movie, right in your head. And believe me, that's wayyy better than seeing the actual movie. With TV, you're just ruining your eyesight and hurting your brain. Books, even though they do tend to waste paper, have a bigger and better effect on the brain, rather than just television with shapes. It expands your mind's ability to grow and reach new levels.

  • Books let you kill two birds with one stone

    When you read books, you get to expand your vocabulary while enjoying yourself. Not only that, but looking at the television screen for too long will spoil your eyes. I believe that watching television will waste your youth while you could be learning more about the world with books instead.

  • Books take your imagine to places

    When you read a book it can take ur mind to a woderful place, unlike when your sitting there observing the information and looking at the lights flashing in your face. Books also go into more detail then tv or tv shows. Theres no persure when you have to finsh the book

  • Imagination over substance

    Books are most definitely better than T.V. Previously, I read a post that explained that books are boring because they are just a bunch of words on page, that they are an extreme environmental loss. While I do agree that books do use a lot of paper, there are ways around it. A kindle for example, was created for the sole use of reading. Soon after the original was created, they made one that you could watch T.V and play apps on. Now does anyone read on kindles? Barely, they just watch T.V.Some posters have complained that reading requires imagination, and that is something most people don't have so they watch T.V. because they do not need to imagine. The reason they have no imagination is simply because they do not read, these days, what is the point of having to imagine when you have characters just given to you. With books you have an opportunity to connect to characters because you create their appearances, the authors give you a frame, you are the one who fills it with the picture appeasing to you. When people think about how books are boring, they are thinking about the books that you may be forced to read in school, not the ones that you see fan pages about all over Tumblr and Instagram. I am not saying that all books are the most amazing things in the world and are intriguing, because that is not the case. I love reading but I have read tons of books that were extremely slow and boring. However, I do enjoy watching television, and I understand that some people have only read books that we're boring and that has given them a horrible example of literature. There are many good programs on television, and the news and education channels are some of the positive sides of television, but overall books are more fulfilling.

  • Way too addictive

    Tv is very addictive which is a problem because children will keep watching the tv rather than doing something more productive like studying, or playing outside with their friends or even cleaning their room! If you are going to watch tv give yourself a limit to watching it like 30 mins or something. Or if you really need to waych tv you can watch something like bbc, cnn, national geographic or discovery!

  • Books are good.

    Of course books are better than TV. It destroys society. I would like to mention that TV does not have conscience, moral principles and shame. Besides, it promotes violence, debauchery and cynicism. In addition, today television takes the role of up bringer for our children. However, almost all the cartoons promote violence and as the result children grow up angry and without any sense what is good and what is bad, what is right and what is wrong. Today teenagers do not have the desire to develop their knowledge. They just sit down near the TV and watch rubbish and as usual they do not have any topics to discuss.

    Nowadays television has bad influence not only on children but also on adults. I would like to consider this issue as an example the sitcom "Married...With children" because my family watches it and I decided to find out the meaning of this TV series. Soon i realized that it is the propaganda of ignorance, disrespect women to men and to seniors.An adult can understand that it is exaggerated, mocking look at our reality, but the child absorbs information in its pure form.

    However, when you read a book you develop your imagination, vocabulary and train memory. Besides, very often a person can find answers to many questions of concern to human and sometimes solutions to any problems connecting with not only with romantic relationships but with global problems such as finding meaning in life and choosing the right path. In the heroes of the books we often can find similar traits of character, outlook and attitude towards life. There is is no wonder that a lot of people have their favorite literary characters and when people read about them in particular book, they cognize themselves and reveal the hidden potential of own character.

    In addition, reading the works of good writers makes a person think as smoothly as in the book. Swear words disappear from the lexicon and language become more intelligent. Besides, it becomes easier to write a letter, essay, composition and poem.

    To my mind people should read books as more as it possible in order to stop degradation!
