And let’s be honest here, verry few of us have an unlimited data or wifi to binge watch all those shows. Why not save those MBs and GBs and go read for a while?
Another great tip is to read the book before you watch the movie or show. These days so many book to movie or show adaptations are coming up and becoming popular that it’s impossible to avoid them! Pick a show and look up the book it has been adapted from and go read it first. That way not only will you be able to watch the show but also get some reading done. There’s also the fact that reading the book before binge-watching will give you more of an insight into the themes and characters and you will be less confused and excited to see the characters you had read about play out on the screen.
Don’t feel guilty of binge-watching, it’s okay to do that every once in a while. Both reading and binge watching can go hand in hand if you are clever and resourceful. You can read a book while commuting to work or school or college and then binge watch on the weekends. Just remember to maintain this healthy balance in your life!
