Many people love to smoke bud and kick back to enjoy some television or a movie. But if you are more intellectually inclined, or just bored of watching TV, you should try reading a book instead.

Books are often more mentally engaging than movies, and getting really deep into a book while stoned can sometimes feel like being in a different world altogether. If you are someone who has a curious mind when they are high, books are a great way to satisfy that curiosity with knowledge and entertainment.
