I prefer films of course cause watching is more fun than books, and books are hard to imagine some times but films makes you see what happens in the story and it's obvious that seeing better than imagining

Actually I prefer the book. Always I prefer to read a book than to watches a film because when I read a good book I can imagine other places, and exercising my mind.

books will always be my choice.

I prefer books because it increases the imagination.

I prefer films to books , That's saving time . ;)

I like both of them but it depends on the story and the author.
so If I have a good book with a good story I will read it, and i will do the same thing with films.

it depeds, if is a action story i prefer to see in a cinema becuse i like to enjoy the sound, scenes action but if a mistery drama i prefer read tehe book.

I think the film has many advantageous value over book that aids understanding and reality like the music, special effects, story, fantastic looks, actors and so on.
I agree with the preference of 'the flim'.
I prefer 'the film' to 'the book'.

The book definitely. Since I was a child and I learned how to read I enjoy a read books. Because I can known differents stories that happened on different places and join his with my own imagination. I think that the same story is better told in a book that the film, even for your mental health!.

I prefer books to films especially those ones that can motivate my imagination.
