  • 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.

  • I don't think that books are better than tv

    Watchin tv can be educational as well. Watching tv can be faster then reading a book if you want to find the main idea. With tv you don't even need to pay twenty or more dollars unless you want to watch foxtel, so it is chipper. Also tv seris come out faster than book series so you do not have to wait as long if you are itching to see the next tv episode. And that is why tv is better books.

  • Books are Better

    I think that books are better because they make your brain work more than T.V, they have more interesting details, and they make you smarter.

    I think that books are better because they make your brain work more than T.V. I think this because with the T.V you just watch images pass by and listen to the people talking. But with books you have to make up the pictures in your head and focus more so you can make those come alive in the first place.

    I also think that books are better because they have more interesting details. When you ever watch T.V you miss things because you are looking at something else. But with a book you don’t miss things because you have to read everything if you want the story to make sense and to be fulfilling at the end for solving all of the characters problems.

    The last reason why I think that books are better is because the make you smarter. With T.V you just sit and watch a funny show not really learning anything.

  • TV are unrivaled

    Watching a story or a documentary in digital format, say, the movie LOTR or dolphin conversation, take much less time than reading a book. Indeed reading a book is often considered as mature because in most cases, it allows profound reflection on the book’s theme afterward. However book fanatic usually neglects the shadowed setback, which is taking an awful lot of time to finish a book. Take this as an example: a single chapter of Harry Potter might take up to a week if not month to finish, while the same episode requires you no more than a handy of hours, not to mention how much message are potentially conveyed in such relatively short period of time. In other words, only as half much or fewer time are needed to go through the entire story and the theme it deliver by viewing movies instead of watching books. So the edge given by time saving in watching TV is seemed to be unrivaled, but what about the benefits it bring about?
    Nowadays the hectic lifestyle in Hong Kong has long been criticized as the barrier from any relaxation, resulting in urbanite suffering from deprivation of leisure pastimes. As I mentioned before, reading books are precisely one of the most time-demanding leisure that we craved but far from reaching. And now we are provided with a much more time saving and thrilling alternatives that ultimately fit in our tight schedule and matches dynamic pace—movies. Who would rather spend one’s precious time to take a sit and unfold a book, while the remote control is within finger tip, given that your are desperate for instant unwinding? In short it takes almost forever to de stress through turning pages for a busy person, while he can have entertainment in no time through watching TV.

  • Books bring liberty while TV binds us down to a place stamping us as a couch potato

    TV binds us , pins us down inside the walls of a room not only physically but also intellectually limiting our senses. It brings fatigue and drain while books lend a stimulating enrichment to our brain , keeping us at ease all the time. So books liberate us while TV ensures an intellectual slavery being imposed upon us.
