  • Books are better than technology

    Why should we watch TV when there are so many interesting books . Why should we use technical things when there are river of books some say that TV is better and some say that books are better but I known that books are obviously better. I think that we all should say books are better

  • Yes it is

    Books are better than T.V because T.V can cause so many problems like wastage of time, electricity and health. It influences negative appraoch for children, when they saw such an imaginative scenes they do same in real life as well and they can also watch bad things so thats not good for them.While book reading is more informative and cannot immerse bad things in the mind of children.

  • Books are so much better than television.

    Television rots your mind. When you are watching television you are not utilizing your brain, you are just absorbing things fed to you. When you read a book, you have to envision the story in your mind and act out the figures in your head. You use your senses to "see" the story.

  • No producers searching for ratings

    While television offers more bang-for-your-buck, what are you really getting? Can you honestly sum up a 500 page book (Grapes of Wrath) into a 2 hour movie? You can, but the information is diluted.

    Not only that but you kill creativity, vocabulary, and problem solving skills by not encouraging reading.

  • Not having electricity

    Every time there is electricity?No.. Then what you will do?And one more thing books are of cheap cost if you buy one t.V in that budget book store can be open......T.V can effect on our eyes ,brain and in our studies and books gives you knowledge and t.V takes your time

  • Books are Better

    TV can have bad language or inappropriate content and smaller children could be flipping around channels and find a channel with bad language. On the other hand, books are more child-friendly because there is no way you can change your book with a TV remote. Books also help with vocabulary and grammar to help students in school.

  • Books are better

    We don't even have a TV, and we have survived just fine so far. Studies show that watching TV makes kids more aggressive and to have lower verbal reasoning ability. Staring at screens all day is not good for you. Same idea with the cell phone. Books are portable. You can bring them anywhere. Instant entertainment! TV, not so much. It is also fun. I love books. So many original stories. Much better then a Sponge Bob cartoon. Have you realized that most TV shows and movies are based off a book? And that most books are better that the movie? Take Lord of the Rings for instance, the real book is much better and has many more details then the movie. All in all, books are not only healther then TV, but also more amusing

  • Books are clearly better

    I wholeheartedly believe that
    ~watching tv weakens your eyes
    ~makes you lazy
    ~makes you fat
    and most importantly tv interferes with your studies,when you watch tv you can't stop so if you can't stop when will you study for school.When we watch tv then we get addicted to it which is mentaly very bad for us.
