A book is known to be a man’s best friend. Reading a book is probably one of the most therapeutic things to do when you’re anxious or just bored. While reading a book can be pretty entertaining, watching a movie can be much easier and less time-consuming. In my opinion, reading a book is better than watching a movie because movies are short and precise and do not cover every little detail that the writer has published in a book. For people who are busy in their daily lives or have jobs, movies can be very convenient and easy to watch. It takes at least 2 to 3 days for a good reader to finish reading a book and if you’re in your professional life then reading a book can be quite hectic too. But there are a lot of people who find peace in reading books and therefore prefer it over watching the movie. Another big disadvantage of watching a movie is that you watch a movie on a mobile phone or television which can cause great distress to your eyes and affect your eyesight too. Reading a book can have a negative impact on your eyesight too but only if you’re reading it in dull light. There are a lot of people who prefer reading the book and then watching the remake of that book as the movie. This is because they can have complete clarity of everything the writer has tried to portray. Our generation prefers watching a film over reading a book because it’s a better source of entertainment. You can watch a film in a cinema with your friends and discuss it later but this is not the case with books. You can’t read a book as a group and discuss it. I still think that reading a book is better in so many other ways. The precision of character, their emotions, and their lives are given in the book can never be portrayed in a two-hour movie. Furthermore, books allow you to enhance your imagination and think out of the box. Almost 55% of our generation prefers watching a movie, 25% prefers reading a book and 20% prefer doing both. It’s heartbreaking to see how technology has taken over the world and if people do not start giving attention to reading books then there might be a time where we will be living in a world without books and a world without books means a world without imagination.
