The question today is, which do you prefer…….reading the book or watching the movie/tv series. I, personally, enjoy reading the book. Reading is something I’ve enjoyed my whole entire life. Hollywood has taken to making these books into a movie or tv show of some kind, which is fine by me. I don’t mind watching a movie based on a book if I enjoyed the book. If I didn’t like the book, then you wouldn’t be able to get me to touch the movie/tv show with a ten foot pole.
Now, I’m all for reading the book but my hubby is the opposite. He’d rather watch the movie/tv show than read the book. With the Harry Potter series for example, I’ve read all the books and I’ve watched all the movies. My hubby on the other hand has at least watched the movies with me. I initially didn’t think he’d like the watching them with me, however, he did end up liking thm (much to my surprise). So, I can usually get my hubby to watch the movie or tv show with me…..as long as it’s not really girly or anything like that.
But there are a couple of different reasons why I choose to read instead of watch. The book, I can take that with me a lot easier than I can watching a tv or movie. I know that with technology is these days, you can watch stuff on your smartphone. But I’d rather not waste the battery on my phone just to watch something. I don’t want to have a dead phone and need to make a call in an emergency. Also, in the case of the movies, I can spend more time reading and enjoying it. A movie is usually over within a couple of hours and there is a lot they have to leave out with a limited time frame.
