movies are nice when you dont have a month to read a book. You can spend 2 hours and get a good idea of what the book was about. You also get the visual portion of the book. I like reading books though. Just dont have as much time as I would like to invest in reading. I do read for a few minutes each night before I go to bed.

Both, but sometimes I prefer the book over the movie.

As a rule of thumb, the book is always better than the movie. I've noticed that this does not apply when movies have been turned into books.

I couldn't agree more with this post. My love of books is far greater than that of movies, but movies turned into books aren't generally very enjoyable for me.

I'd choose a book over a movie any day. Maybe I'm weird, but I find books to be much more engaging, and they allow you to make all of the scenes within your mind. Movies are rather passive activities for me.

Where ever possible I always read a book before I see a movie made about a book. It can backfirer either way though. For example, I read "A Walk to Remember" as the movie was being promoted and cried so much there is no way I could watch the movie, the same for "Dear John". But I watched "The Notebook" before I realised it was a book and now know that nothing will compare to the movie, so I wont read the book.

I agree. Plus you can use your imagination when you read the books to make it even better.

The book is always better. But there have been some pretty good films made. It's all about capturing the core essence of the book.

Once I've read the book I'm always disappointed by the movie.

Books if I can give it my full attention, movies if I want to draw or crochet.

I have always found the book to be better than the movie. However, I will still see the movie if the book was good enough.

If it's a book I like i'd be excited to see the movie of it.

The book versions of books that have been made into movies are usually better, but I like both.
