You can stop reading something at any point and put it aside but with anime you have to kinda keep your attention on it for a whole episode since it's made to be watched that way, you can just keep pausing and unpausing cause it breaks its flow but you don't have that issue with manga or books which aren't made to be done in just one sitting and can be easily put aside for a few moments an then came back to.
By my standarts books are better. The negative aspect of it its super duper time consuming . If i had to choose between anime and LN version of it i would choose LN.Just because there is so much more you can find in there compared to anime that is thr main aspect which keeps drawing me back to read to search for something interesting. Only sad part of it if you just finished amazing book all others feel so blank.. i even have to take break from reading for few weeks because of that . Worse case was when read KR novel Dungeon defense it has deep japanese LN roots with dark aspects in it but after reading this i couldnt pick any other book for over 2 months .

At least for the few times I've read a manga, I routinely kept reading for several more pages to find a good stopping point when I wanted/needed to take a break. Stopping right in the middle of a scene didn't feel right to me. Of course, if I had to, I could stop and resume anywhere, but I can do the same thing with anime. The effect is largely the same for me.
Same for me i dont see any meaning in reading mangas i only read it if there is no version of anime of it or i dont wanna wait for continuation.
I would really sugest you both trying to read "Dungeon Defense" you might find what is so amazing about a trully good japanese inspired book
