What would you choose, if you were sitting in front of a TV and having a book right next to the keyboard? The answer will most certainly be that you would choose the TV! The young people would absolutely provide us with this choice, but you will be surprised to find out that the older ones will at least hesitate about it. Why is it happening? Are the books not as interesting as they used to be? Is it that the world has changed so much in the recent years that our habits are not the same anymore?
This may be a possible explanation to the people's lack of interest for literature. Another reason might be the change of lifestyle that the world has undergone. We are more likely to visit a club or a bar for relaxation after a long day's work, rather than read a b
ook in the comfort of our own homes. People are more outgoing than they used to be, this also due to the numerous temptations that lie around at every street corner. All the pressure and stress of a day at work makes us want a quick, but efficient relaxing means. Perhaps most of us do not have the patience to read anymore. It is much simpler to turn on the TV and watch the latest news around the world, than read 19th century literature!
With all the TV stations that the cable companies offer these days, each and every single one of us can find an interesting show or movie to watch. What's better than getting in bed with the remote control and falling asleep whenever you wish? You are the master of all the TV stations. You get to set the play list and therefore you will never get bored doing it. The TV can also provide educational programs, so you cannot state that you lack information. The single disadvantage is that the TV will never provide you with all the facts a book can. Television is much more superficial than books, even if it does get you relaxed in an instant!
