Than TV or movies??
Really. Is it just me? Am I the only one that gets way more freaked out by a creepy book than a creepy show?
Yesterday I reviewed Skin and Bones by DC Corso and I couldn't finish reading it in a day.... because it was too late at night and it was creepy.
Yet I can watch Criminal Minds anytime... day or night.**
Which got me thinking. What the heck is up with that?
I think it's the imagination factor-- my imagination is totally engaged when I'm reading. I'm picturing stuff. I'm internalizing.
With shows, they've done some of the work for me. I'm watching it, so I don't need to imagine, right?
Am I nuts? Does any of that make sense?
So I want to know-- are YOU more creeped out by books or shows?? Why do YOU think that is???
Seriously, I want to know.
**Except when pregnant. Totally can't watch it at night while pregnant. Dreams are too funky.
