    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.

    Books because then you could let your imagination provide you with the visuals and you might like those better than what the movies provide. :)

    Usually I prefer books over movies.

    Jason Bourne books > movies.

    Lord of the Rings movies > books.

    Howls moving castle. Books = movies
