  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • No television is not better than books.

    Television is for entertainment books are for education. Education is always more important than entertainment. Most of the content on television today is detrimental to young adults, I would choose books over TV any day. There are ways that you can learn things from TV like current events from the news or the history channel, but it is always better to read.

  • Books are better

    I think that books are much better than television as they engage your mind. They train your imagination and you become a better writer as well. Sure you can watch television, just make sure that you read the book first so that you already have your version of the character.

  • Books are better

    Have you ever thought about the people who come up with ideas for movies?? Well most of them are the authors of great books. TV wastes electricity.
    •TV is distracting when your are doing homework and books are part of your homework There is a much greater variety of books
    •Now it’s ok to watch TV sometimes but it’s just not good for you all the time, reading is good for you all the time especially when you're bored or tired.
    •TV can have rude and immature language but books can be easily monitored
    •Can you bring a television into the classroom? Can you bring a television on the bus?
    •Books are educational. They can teach you new words. They also give you as much time as you like to take in what is on the page, but the T.V. Can’t stop for people to understand what is going on.

  • Books are better than television

    Books are better because they have a variety of uses and they are cheap and you can borrow them from a nearby library. They are also better because its like watching tv in your head instead of watching on a screen. This is also better because we don't have to keep paying power bills every month which uses up most of our spending money.
    So this is why I think books are better than television.

  • Books are better

    People nowadays are more used to watching television rather than reading books, forgetting the advantages of it. Reading books give us insights which pictures alone cannot provide. It is often said that, "a picture says a thousand words" but when people are watching pictures or movies they don't use their imagination as much as they do while reading books.

  • No way! Books are better!

    Books can also be passed down from generation to generation but television is still getting modified from a black and white television to a 3D smart television. As well as that; we have many varieties of books for example; fantasy, magic, documentary, fairy tales, lullabies and many more.
    Books are so much easier to produce than television. This means saving time. You can also recycle books but can you recycle television? NO!
    When we READ a series of books we always get to read the next book of the series quicker than movies as it takes longer to produce.
