One Book or One TV Show for a Year...

My writing prompt for today is.....if you had your choice, would you watch only (one) tv show for a year or would you rather read (one) book for a year...and what would it be?

Well, you could probably guess mine, by my blog. But, just to humor you I will a book.

We do not have tv reception, for which I am thankful. I think tv would rot my brain.

Now, which book would I read? I am thinking it would have to be a long one. I would love to take along books in a particular series, but that's not the what the question is asking.

Of course, as a Christian, I could read my Bible. But, for the sake of this question, I will not use that as my answer. Maybe another day, another time.

I would probably read one I have done a review on and forwarded it to another friend to read.
One that is worth another read. One that asks the question `In the future, it's possible to live forever - But at what cost`?

`The Last Christian` (David Gregory)  ~ You can read my review here

Now it's your turn. Do you prefer t.v. or a book and which one? Why?

I can't believe we haven't run into each other before! I have read that book! It was a few years ago. Interesting you should choose it! I am going to have to find it in storage and read it again. I reviewed it too! I am trying to get back into reviewing!
Well thanks for coming by my Saturday post! You've Blessed me!
Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Hi Grantham Lynn,

I know...I'm surprised we haven't met each other before. It's nice to meet you, as I think we have a lot in common. I would love to read your review on this book.

I hope you do get back into reviewing. It will be nice to read yours. I only review a book every 3 - 4 weeks. I think this coming week I'll be posting another review.

Have a great weekend!

Visiting you back from the blog hop!! The media I choose depends on my mood. If I'm needing some solitude - give me the book. If I'm just needing to unwind and space, give me the tube!

Hi Helen,

Thanks for the visit.
Have a great week.
I would probably say "watch one TV show for a year" but if I picked one book it would be the Bible!

I'd pick a book too. :) I watch TV now and again, but it does not compare to reading. I've not heard of your choice though--I must go read your review if it's the one book you would read!

Hi Lisa,

I really liked that book.
I went as far as loaning it out so others could read it.
It really gives a lot to think about.

Easy pick between book and TV ... hands down, book. Now, *choosing* that book in an entirely different matter!! Like you, as a Christian, the Bible would be an easy shoo-in, or Oswald's My Utmost For His Highest. If we could pick a *series* that would be nice -- I'd pick the Mitford series, or The Lord of the Rings, or Little House. But just one-single-book??? This requires a lot of thought!!

Hi Debby,

The Bible is a good choice.
Our church, as a whole, is reading through the Bible this year.
It will take me all year to read it...

Hi Denise,

I like `Little House`
I tried reading the Mitford series, couldn't get into it.
I have been thinking of retrying the `Lord of the Rings`

I'm not sure what series I would pick.
I like the book I chose because it gives food for thought where America is headed.
At one time I would not have thought of America needing Missionaries.
Now, it is all too real.

Definitely a book. We have not had cable for many years. We do have an antenna, so we get a few channels. But more and more I am even getting frustrated with that because of the commercials. For the sake of this question, a DVD could be used, but I still would choose a book. Books can be so life-changing, and if I am going to be taking in one thing for a whole year, I would want it to be life-changing. Great question, Michelle!

Hi topaz,

Thanks for the encouraging comment.
I hope you have a great week!

We went about 10 years without having a television. Now we do, but I would still choose a book. I don't know which one, but it would have to be of travel and adventure.

Hi Rhonda,

I like being without t.v., there just anything to watch. Books offer so much more.
Thank you for stopping by.
