I know it doesn't matter which book you choose to read. However, whenever I ride the trolley or ride on a bus, I see adults only reading novels. I never see a kid or a teenager reading a comic book or a manga. And it appears that novels are more popular than graphic novels in American. In Japan, I seen photos of business people and students reading manga. That is because their culture revolves around visual art. But in American, more people only read more novels. Plus there arew barely any comic book store known. And there book stores and library only have small sections of graphic novels. If you want to find a place that has more graphic novels and manga, the comic conventions are the biggie. And usually children and nerds are the readers of most graphic novels. Do you think Novels are higher than graphic novels in America?
