  • Yes, It Is.

    If you are reading a book, you have to drag your eyes across a bunch of words that might as well be in Arabic if you're American, Chinese if you're South American, and in Khmer if you're Canadian. Or even in gibberish for that matter. With TV, everything just rolls on by itself and all you have to do is watch the screen. You'd need a whole shelf full of encyclopedias to be up-to-date all the time, wheras you can simply get it all right up to the minute with television. Kids will actually watch TV more likely than they will read a book. If reading a book, you have to picture and remember in your head what everything and everyone looks like. On a TV screen, you can see easily what everything looks like. Some might say that there is too much violence on TV these days, but you can also find the same kind of violence in books.

  • A tough question but...

    While television is more entertaining, there is more potential benefit in books. Let me list a few them: learning to read better, learning to spell better, higher chances of building vocabulary, building imagination, and learning to write better. Sure, some of these benefits can be gained from watching television, but books that are for one's age guarantee that person those benefits. Plus, it is harder to pick up bad habits from books than from television.

  • Books are Better

    There is no question that, these days, great TV shows can consume a person's thoughts and emotions. But nothing compares with the total immersion one feels when reading a great book. You picture yourself in the book's setting and let your imagination run wild with the author's descriptions. It consumes your entire mind.
