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?
