    I'm a huge movie buff, during the last summer holiday I was watching 2 films a day. I didn't read once during that time so maybe I'm a little biased when I say movies are better.

    Reasons movies are better:

    Cinematography: I get goosebumps when seeing amazing visuals in movies, but in books that's never happened.

    Soundtrack: Unless you read books with earphones.

    Entertainment: A book can be more entertaining depending on the person, but with me reading makes me tired.

    Ability to stay in your head: A good movie will stay in your head for longer, probably make you think more too.

    Storyline: Storyline and well written characters are even in good movies and good books.

    Imagination: Books win this one, creating a character in your head is pretty cool.

    Anyone say books are better? Why?

    It all depends on the script writer, director, actors, special effects etcetera. Those can make or break a movie. But reading a book also has it's own charm. I'm not saying one is better than the other. It's just different.

    Boooo, answered like a politician. Okay, let me rephrase the question. What do you prefer, your favourite movie or your favourite novel?

    Depends on the place and time. No politics involved

    Movies. I am one of those readers who can go through an entire chapter and then realize I was daydreaming about something else and have no idea what I read. Audio stops me from daydreaming.

    Sameee. Do you ever read a couple of sentences and then realise that you never actually registered what it was saying and then you have to go back and re-read it a couple more times? Every single page for me.

    I like books but I never take the time to read without 100 distractions. I've had the same 6 books next to my bed for like 2 years :lonely:

    I'm still trying to finish The Tommyknockers but every time I pick it up I only get a few pages in before something else requires my attention.
