Hi Nikoslado,

I've listened to the recording and I hear 1981, not 1991. It's said quite quickly but I don't think there's a mistake.

I prefer books any day because books are good for learning and are a good use of your time.

It depends.As for me, i like the movie 'The lord of the Rings' and the book, because the producer was rather careful with the book and tried to showed most things as they were in book.
From the one hand, there are many films that shows just part that was written in book and they are not live up my expectations. But for the other hand, movie can show beautiful pictures, that i could not imagine in my head, also to watching film takes less time than reading books.

I prefer the book because I think that literature can always be better in any ways. You can imagine all the scenes and like a woman said in Your Turn it's almost like see a film in your own head. It's a beautiful feeling. Nevertheless, films can also be good. :)

it depends on the time; if I have a long time I will watch the movie

I prefer the book, it's more detailed, but some films are better, especially when there's a lot of action.

Hi,
For me, It's depend on title. for novel, I prefer the book. because it explained with details. and for action title, definitely cinema is better than the book.

Reading a book is more good for me ,i love to use my mind
to imagin every detail.

I prefer reading books than watching films because the chance of wasting your time while watching films are more away than reading books.

I think It depends on books and films. But books are more useful for us than films. Books help to become smarter.
