R is for Reading

I love reading. Why, you ask? Well, I don’t know. I do know most books are better than movies and tv shows. Even the books that get turned into movies and tv shows.

A picture is supposed to be worth a thousand words, but you couldn’t prove it by me. Movies don’t have half the detail of a good novel.

If anyone says otherwise, it’s because they haven’t read the novel the movie was based on and don’t know half the details are missing. They don’t realize there is no way to put all or even most of the details of a 300-page novel into a 2 hour movie. I expect this; I may complain, but I am rarely disappointed by this.

Which is not to say I don’t enjoy them. I do. I like watching movies, 3D movies, normal movies, TV shows, documentaries. They are fun. I enjoy them immensely.

They just aren’t as fun as most novels. Lots of people don’t get that.
