Are you a TV or a book person?

I am more of a book person because it stimulates me more by using my imagination. It allows me to be creative as well. Moreover it also widens my vocabulary. How about you? Do you spend more time on watching tv or reading a book?

I also love reading books. I used to read about 3 nooks in a week cause I really get excited to know what will happen right away with stories that are interesting. But because I am wearing glasses, I have limitations in reading small letters. And so now, most of the time I just watch the television.

I am definitely more a book person. I'm not sure why. TV and movies just do not capture my attention like books do for whatever reason! In the past six months, I have probably in total watched 2 hours of TV. And I have probably read, in the past 6 months, 15 books. . I used to watch TV all the time! Now I read instead. I don't know when this happened, but I don't mind! I especially like crime novels and scandalous memoirs! . Happy reading to you!

I'm more of a tv person.:( As much as I wanted to be a bookworm, I easily get bored reading books. But up until now, I've been trying to train myself to do less with TV and more with books. I still hope I'd be successful with it soon.:)

During the daytime, I read books and in the evening I watch TV. In my case, I like both activities. To watch a good movie is more for the time when I am a bit tired and can't get my mind on a book.

i am doing both.. yes correct that you may be able to stimulate your imagination when you are reading books but with television specially if it is educational then it will also help your stimulate your imagination in some ways..

Hello there. I think I'm more of a TV person. When I'm at home and I started watching TV already, it's hard for me to stop watching. I love watching a lot of TV programs like variety shows, dramas, music programs, and some old English, Korean and Filipino movies. I think watching TV is easier than reading some books. At times, I also love reading some books if I have sufficient time to do it. For now, I don't have enough time to do it so I just love watching TV. Watching TV is also enjoyable for me because I see the beautiful actresses and handsome actors singing, dancing, and acting. I'm inspired to make myself beautiful too when I see them. I also see some fashionable clother worn by them. Those are only some reasons why I think I'm more of a TV person than a book person. I think I spend more time watching television than reading some books. :)

I would have to say t.v person. I used to read so many books when I was younger but then I started watching t.v because it doesn't strain my eyes nearly as bad as books. Also that the t.v visualizes images for me.

I used to read books all the time. As a kid when I first learned to read I loved it. I spent a lot of time at the library. Now, not so much. I guess I turned into more of a TV person. But I agree with you that reading stimulates the imagination and helps develop a good vocabulary. I kinda miss relaxing with a good book but I just don't have the time anymore.

It varies - depends on where I am. When I'm at home I get to be more of a TV person because I stay in the living room and do work from my Macbook from there. But if I am traveling or out of the country, I would be more of a book person. I prefer to read. But times have changed, and stories I read these days are now from my iPhone or laptop. I don't really care about TV that much, I could live without it since through the internet I would still be able to get my news anyway.
