My mother left this message on my telephone answering machine.

"It's just past 8 o'clock and you're probably out for dinner, but I just wanted to let you know I've been reading your book that you wrote and I'm just thrilled!
"I'm only up to page [pause while she checks] 68, but your description and imagination are amazing!
"I'll talk to you later, but I just wanted to let you know that I'm reading it and enjoying it so much."
