    Reading a book is a work out. You have to use your language skills, understanding and imagination -- and actually get involved in the book. Television is the easy way out. It does all the "work" for you. You don't have to "think". You can put your mind on "hold". Someone else is controlling the images and the speed at which you see them. Yes, it's said that a picture is worth 1,000 words. But the picture YOU create in your own mind is much more valuable and can be much more fantastic! Channels like Discovery are very few and far between. Most TV is junk -- badly animated cartoons, mindless violence, stupid situation "comedies" with canned laugh tracks, soap operas, endless "reality" shows with wannabe celebrities. And the English you'll find there is often not that "good". Just because most people prefer one thing to another doesn't necessarily make that thing more worthwhile! So, get up off the sofa, turn off the TV and take a walk...maybe even to the library (where you can learn so much more)!
