Books are dangerous. Yes. And that's by bloody DESIGN.
If a book isn't dangerous, if its ideas are safe and don't challenge the reader, then they are worthless.
I'll freely admit to being a rampaging liberal, but the very idea that book a book is bad because it might make your FEEL something is the biggest load of Belgium I've ever heard.
Listen, students, I'm bipolar. I can get into some REALLY dark moods based on reading a book. At the end of the day, though...
IT'S A BLOODY BOOK!
Suck it up and grow a pair.
If the book gets to you too much, take a break and watch some Tom and Jerry for a while.
