  • 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.

  • TV is better

    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.

  • 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

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • A book creates a world where your imagination flies free and you meet the characters, as if they were standing beside you,

    You go on adventures and quests and escape reality for a little while, the mind numbingness of tv could never beat the adventures and imaginative creations that are created in the magical land of books, this shouldnt even be a debate. Books are better, saying tv is better then books is like saying we should throw imagination out the windows and replace it with automatic creations that picture everything for us, without books there would be no tv, the scripts they write all started with books, books tell tales so tall they'd never be real but at least you can live it in books, and I mean seriously, the smell of a new book? Nothing can beat that.

  • Death of the intellectual

    This world is full of visual atrocities, and though the world of television is an exciting realm to delve in on a cosy Friday night with an easy to understand demonstration of visuals and sound. Books can also give the same pleasure as television, if the author is a good one (such as Vladimir Nabokov) you can almost taste the world you have been placed in. Divine, soft words lulling you into the dimension of your experiences of the world met with those of the author. Your mind must stay active, in this day and age you cannot afford to just watch pure, meaningless static for sheer amusement and hope to god that the brain cells you are losing and your lack of attention span will not be needed in the future.

  • Books are better

    1) If you fall asleep while reading you don’t miss anything.
    2) It’s quiet.
    3) You can do it ANYWHERE including places with no cell service, electricity, wifi, or satellite transmission.
    4) It’s private, just you and the author linking minds and ideas.
    5) It’s free with a library card, and sometimes even without!
    6) There are no commercials.
    7) Your mother will not mind if you do.
    8) Books are easy to share.
    9) TV and movies have been around for less than 100 years. Books have been written for thousands and thousands of years. Everything you need to know is in them.
    10) They are so much fun to pick out!
    I think one reason is that TV is filled with crap. So much that's on TV at any given moment is really bad.

    The Medium Is The Knowledge

    It Can Help You Socialize

    Because television and movies are heavily edited and condensed for time they can't give the same depth of story. A book may take 30 hours to read but it has to fit into 90 minutes for a movie. There are a lot of shortcuts needed to trim that amount of time away from a story.

    Television is all about packaging a bunch of cool little bits together quickly. In restaurant terms TV is fast food and books are top of the line restaurant meals.
    A book can make you cry, laugh, create, and even love. A book can give a guide line for your imagination to fly on.
