Books vs movies? It is always a debatable topic. To read or not to read that is not the question. If you don’t read, you deserve to live under a rock. Seriously. With technology progressing rapidly and humans, being enslaved to their phones, books have been secretly committing suicide.

How many of us take the time to put aside our phones for a whole day and dedicate our time to reading? Very few. Now, the book lovers, or of which that is left, it is in their hands to start a silent revolution to bring back the world blanketed with good old rusty pages of books. Books have once made an impact so huge, people decided to make the characters and story all the more alive by making them into films!

Things that differentiate between books and movies

Is it not such a pleasure to read your favorite book and watch the film and see your characters alive on screen? Harry Potter was spot on. There are people who know the full story just by watching the films and not the books! So my question is, which is more creative? Reading a book or watching a movie? We”ll see.

Books vs Movies: Construction-Reading and Watching
reading

While reading, you construct your way through the book. Every word is a brick to a new building, every word is a cell to a new human! You create a world of your own and this makes a book luckier, for each time when someone picks it up to read it, it lives another life. When you watch a movie, you don’t have to do much construction. Everything is already set on screen for you. All you have to do is, sit, and watch.

Books vs Movies: Convenience

watching moviesIn this busy life, we lead, nobody has the time to sit and read a 500 paged book. It’s far more convenient to have the same information given to you in a 2-hour movie! Though books deliver ideas in detail, a movie does it faster.

Books vs Movies: Perspectives

This is a major plus point of reading. You are left to your imagination and opinions. You view the story through your own eyes. You see places and characters as you want to see them. However, when you watch a movie, you see the movie through the director’s eyes. Decide for yourself, if you want to see it through your imagination or as a copy of someone else’s.

Watching a movie is more of a social experience. You get to spend time with your friends over a movie. It also helps you to bond more with them. You laugh together with your friends! Isn’t that all such fun? Plus theaters, the best hangout place. The place where you get a lot of memories with your friends. If it weren’t for movies, we wouldn’t have all these theaters, our heaven!

Books vs Movies: Reading- A Sensory Experience

Reading is amazing, out of the ordinary sensory experience! Sight, of course. Sound! You ask how? The subtle sweet sound you hear as you turn the pages. The rustle of the pages, ah…am I in heaven?  Smell- Is there anything more lovely and mesmerizing than the smell of old books and new? Taste-um, okay we’ll leave that out! Touch indeed, the very feel of touching the good old papers is beyond words.
