Reading books are not bad like watching TV because watching TV is a waste of time rather than reading books. You can get much information from the books. And you can realize how important they are in our life. Let me tell you about the advantages of book and also its disadvantage. Books are portable, durable, infinitely re-printable, and require no batteries or electricity. Books can go with a person anywhere, and be read everywhere. One can reference a book easily with tabs, marks, notes, underlines, or highlights. Books are easily shared or transferred as gifts and loans. Books are inexpensive and readily available nearly everywhere. You know Books can be translated easily. Books allow the reader to set their own pace and flip back and forth between pages for easy reference to other passages. And they are the friends of human beings on Earth. Now let me tell you its disadvantages. They can wear out. They can become outdated and need to be updated. They can be lost. They cannot be understood in any language except ones they are available in. Not everyone can read, so those who are illiterate cannot use them. Now you know its disadvantages. Now let me tell you the TV advantages and its disadvantages. But first I will tell you its advantages. The television is like a media centre for all those people sitting at home. The television provides you so much of information that you never fall behind the rest of the world. Also the television keeps you updated of the latest things going around in the world. The television shows you the entire world on the different channels.
If you watch the news channel then you are kept updated with the latest things going around in the world. You come to know all the bad things that have happened lately, the good news about India signing a deal with Pakistan and there are so many more. The new channel also tells us about the different disasters, natural calamities etc. these are its disadvantage that watching television causes short attention spans as well as cause reading difficulties or even incapability. I t does not enhance your thinking at all really. We just do it because it is so easy. I'm guilty of this myself; however I try to read more than I watch TV. Think about it. Centuries ago, books were rare and valuable. Owners of them kept them safe. Why has TV taken its place? You can't even use your imagination when watching it. If you are blind than you can't really tell what is going on. With books. You make your own images in your mind. There is nothing to watch. You can have it read to you. If you are deaf than you can still get the same joy out of reading. I don't know about you, but I hate subtitles on a TV screen! My point is that you get much more out of a book than you do with TV. Reading has made me one of the greatest poetry writers in my school. It can do anything for anybody at any time if you let it, give it a chance. So now you know that how books are important for u rather than TV.
