Booking Through Thursday: Movies vs Books
Books and films both tell stories, but what we want from a book can be different from what we want from a movie. Is this true for you? If so, what’s the difference between a book and a movie?
This is a great question! Books are so much better for me. Although I enjoy a good movie, I'd much rather pick up a book and read the story. I visualize so much in my head and there's so much more detail in the book. Usually when I see a movie and I've already read the book, I'm disappointed in the movie. So much is left out that it just isn't the same. I feel more connected to the story when I read it as opposed to watching it on screen. And it stays with me longer.
