Books versus Movies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHave you ever heard someone say, “the book was so much better than the movie”?  Yes, we have all heard or said that at one time or another.  Why do you think that is so?  It’s easy.  What we imagine in our minds while reading a book cannot be replicated on a screen. Books not only open up our minds and ignite our imaginations; it can affect our emotions more so than watching a screen. Recently, I read a book on a topic that was very disturbing to me and I almost shut the book not to open it again; however, it was so well written that it drew me into the book to the point where I could not stop reading.  I did finish the book and am very happy I did. By the way, it was the first book the author had written.  I will definitely be watching for another book authored by him.

A Land More Kind Than Home

by Wiley Cash

Reading entertains and exercises the mind; it’s a necessary part of life.  We can’t live without it – or can we?  Many people do.
