In this age of technological advancements, it was inevitable that commodities which had existed thousands of years before the first computer would become digitalized. Art is now created using computer software, and our books are being digitalized to be read on iPads. This is a travesty. There are few things better in the world than to slowly work your way through a novel, finally reaching the end and flipping that very last page. The digital age is corrupting the youth. Adolescents have constant stimulation from the technology around them, why pick up and struggle to read through an entire book? If the future generations are to learn the same focus, determination, and perseverance that their ancestors did, then they must learn to read books.
