As a wise annotating rat once said...

... there is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing as messing about in books.

You're always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you've done it there's always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not.

Bravo - it looks a very useful and distracting volume.

Useful and distracting?

That sounds like Eeyore on birthday presents. Do not for God's sake let's start another hare.

Yet I thank you.

That looks fascinating. It's definitely going on my "to read" list.

Thank you.

I do hope it suits.
