Books or box sets?

And how to avoid it...

Or do you prefer to be in the company of Breaking Bad rather than Bleak House?

(I should definitely read more poetry).

  • I ont understand any of your post.... But, books always 

  • Books.  I'd always rather read than watch a screen.

    and I do mean BOOKS, not a Kindle.

  • Books for me too.

    I've got a few saved up to read on holiday at the end of the month, although one of them seems to have a picture of Dave inside it so I may give that one a miss.
  • Eek... Not Readers Husbands ? 

  • The XXX version!
  • You're not going to take it through customs are you ?  Might get you 10 years in the Bankok Hilton 

  • I was going to hide it in a copy of the Daily Mail but I may get 15 years for that.
  • I like both in their place, I read late into the night, but in the evening I can watch hours of a good box set. I nearly lost my mind with The Wire.  

  • Books, especially ones you can read with a loved one.

    Me and the girlfriend were reading 50 Shades of Grey together last night. I'm pleased to say that she finished first.

  • Don't like "box sets" but do like a good bit of telly (tricky to find much right now). But I do also like reading so I don't really see why it has to be one or the other.

    I'm surprised that some people on here manage to read or watch telly though with the amount of posting they do!

  • i watch wee snippets of telly. pointless or strictly come dancing. if i have enough time to watch a boxed set then i would rather read.

  • Candy crush saga for me, everytime.

  • Books. No TV.

  • I have a tv, but I rarely turn it on.  There's not much on that grabs my attention the way a good book can do.

  • Books, especially snuggled up in bed or lounging in the garden.

    Box sets are good when I'm tired and fancing some no-effort entertaining.

    I've been called many things but that's a first! (Winky smiley face thing..)

  • If you want to read you'll find time for it. If you donyou find time to read you probably don't want to do it as much as other things. And life's too short to do things because you think you should.

    I like TV because I can surf the net, play games on my phone at the same time. I like reading but have to reign myself in otherwise ill happily read til 3am. Not good when I have work the next day!

  • Both, although I only tend to read when commuting or on holiday.

    To relax boxsets win every time. Nothing better than relaxing with a good boxset to get engrossed in like Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos, Rome, Band of Brothers, Game of Thrones, Spartacus, Seinfeld, Friday Night Lights, The Shield, Battlestar Galactica, Frasier, Boardwalk Empire etc.

    You see, this is why commas are important image

    I can stand an hour of TV at best but books win hands down I could read from cover to cover

    that's usually the idea.

  • Books but watch box sets on the turbo trainer!
