Reading a Book vs. Watching a Movie
There’s a bonanza of terrific movies out now–CRAZY RICH ASIANS, THE WIFE, THE BLACK KLANSMAN, OPERATION FINALE, and even INCREDIBLES 2. Plus there’s all those terrific movies you can catch on Netflix, On Demand, Hulu, …. I was on the railroad the other day and only saw commuters watching movies on their phones or playing video games. At least in my car, there were no readers of books. Yes, I love, love movies, but I read at least a book a week also, along with articles and whatever comes my way. Here’s the case for reading in this busy world”

Love this, Rochelle, & have forwarded it to several friends who are teachers. My life has been crazy for the past 3 1/2 years due to deaths in the family & messes to be dealt with because of them. I’ve learned way too much about the CA probate system & what happens when the gardener takes over a family’s finances. It would make a great memoir if I had the strength to go through it all again, but that probably won’t happen. Looking forward to getting back to a semi-normal life, hopefully early next year. In the meantime, I’ve really been enjoying being your posts in my own quiet way. Thank you. Love, Vicki

I always wonder how a poorly written book winds up on film. Thats the case today of a blockbuster movie.

You’re right, Man. If it’s a bad book, the movie can only be worse.

Thanks for posting. Clears up why I enjoy books so much more than movies and even prefer listening to books than seeing movies. I also appreciate that I can put down the book and pick it up again, taking in the story in shorter doses – except of course, for those few books that I cannot stop reading until the end.

I have just begun to use AUDIBLE and LOVE IT.
