Booking Through Thursday
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?
Yes, I would say that's true. Here's some differences between the two, for me anyway:
Books use your imagination much much more. In movies, it's all done for you.
Books are quiet. Movies are loud.
Books go much deeper into the characters and situations. Movies only scratch the suface with what's really going on.
Books are an "alone" experience. Movies are a social experience.
Books stimulate the brain. Movies stimulate the senses.
Books are more fulfilling, like you've actually accomplished something. Movies are more of a time filler, something you can fit in between everything else.
However, both are very entertaining. Both are great ways to escape the real world. Both are fun and enjoyable.
Books and movies? Yeah... I love 'em both!
