Best Answer

Millie pretends that she was in on it, that the whole thing was just some sort of joke or demonstration to show just how silly books really are. Montag, after some convincing from Faber as well, ends up going along with it. After reading the poem ("Dover Beach"), Mrs. Phelps and Mrs. Bowles are both upset. Mrs. Phelps is in tears and Mrs. Bowles in furious, saying that books are evil and only cause trouble. Montag then proceeds to toss the book into the fire.
