Beatty’s Books

After the discussion last class, I was thinking a lot about the “weaponized” way Beatty uses books, but mostly I was thinking about the fact that he uses books to prove his argument. Even though his argument is that books are useless and unimportant, he still quotes literature to prove his point; therefore demonstrating that books do, in fact, have a use. I was wondering if anybody else is reveling in this unsinnige- oh, excuse me- nonsensical type of irony?
