    better than nothing at all.

    if you seek to become scholar it's disastrous to only read books not scholars. every talieb 'ilm must learn to other scholars whose chain of sanad unbroken till our Prophet. but for layman who doesn't seek such path, books and lectures written by scholars are better than nothing at all.

    lest you must ditch all kitaabs of ulema in your shelf to the bin because it's "disastrous".

    sorry if i misunderstand your point tho

    Both. Lectures give me chances to meet pious people while books are my friends in all time I need.

    I find that what I read sticks in my mind much longer than what I hear spoken in a lecture, especially considering the fact I can quickly go back over a passage or a chapter that I had a difficult time understanding, something that can't be done at a live lecture.

    Both. I read many books and attend many lectures too. During the lecture I usually ask some questions to the ustadz/mufti/syaikh. I pretty much like lecture actually, however it is kinda difficult to find knowledgeable person which can clarify my doubts about a matter.

    direct lectures are more personal, more human and "real", where we can ask question right away to the sheikh and get answer immediately. it's just with the pre-recorded lectures, I'm pretty impatient and the lecture audio/video file is usually big, too big for my slow internet connection.

    however I'd prefer books, it's very flexible, especially E-books :p. Right now I store around 100 ebooks on my cellphone, no exaggerating. I'm greedy when it comes to books, I love reading very much and spend my alone time with it.

    I think as long as both sources are reliable we can learn from all angles.

    lectures that i can attend in person

    books don't always provide you with all the answers and it can be difficult to verify information on your own
