How often does one pick up a book only to discover it's a thorough bore? One, of course, then puts the TV back on. If that's a bore, too, one goes to bed. If one cannot fall asleep, one then picks up the boring book or seeks a boring TV program in the hope it might put one to sleep.
I am always reading something as well, but I also enjoy having the TV in the background--maybe because my husband always has the TV on...so I tune it out.
Ideally, both at once--if the TV program is worth watching, I'll read during commercials.
Reading book is a boring thing to do. I can watch time whenever I can.
read a book...without a doubt. im not much into tv since i was a kid. my cousins always say "you're weird!" because everytime they asked me to watch tv with them i just ask them if i could borrow their books in school.
It depends. If I am totally exhausted after a long day then I just want to collapse in front of the tv. Tv uses almost no brain power, which can be good or bad. If you really want to relax it is good but if you watch to much it is really bad. If I am just looking for a way to relax or something to do then it is a book. Books let you think!

I think I have turned on my TV probably 10 times in the last 4 years. I find that television really dumbs us down. (I believe that is how the expression goes.) Television used to be entertaining in a...
