It’s funny, in class we were asked what would we rather have to understand a flower- a description or a picture? My first instinct was picture even though I see both important in understanding a flower. I then declared to myself that I must just be a visual learner, which I definitely am. Though I am a walking contradiction, so naturally there had to be something to go against this.

As for the Book vs. Movie topic, I will always side with the book. Funny, cause I had just acknowledged that I must be a visual learner…so wouldn’t you think I’d rather just go see a movie? Yes they are different, but in a lot of way they aren’t. It’s ultimately words vs. pictures, and yet within both options there is a little of the opposing. Am I making sense? Most likely not but hey.

Either way I find myself always picking the book. There is just nothing better than reading and making a movie in your own mind (perhaps this is the control freak in me??). For me there is a more personal connection, I tend to find myself less distracted and more involved in a book every time. There is beauty in being able to put it down and pick it back up where I left off. It is wild how words can bring you to a completely different world. A movie will just never have that kind of power over me.

  1. What is it about reading that you find more pleasing than watching a movie? Perhaps, you are better able to imagine the story through your own perspective, whereas in a movie, you are given the visual details.
