Hi, everyone!

I had a few minutes to myself, so I thought I'd stop in and see how you were doing, catch up on reading a few threads, and even post myself to let you know that yes, I still love Textkit, and yes, I will be back!

The nursery is thriving, which, of course, is good for business, but makes a great deal more work for us. In addition to that, my sister and ...

quare habe tibi quidquid hoc libelli

What exactly is going on here? I've heard "take whatever of this book, such as it is", but though libelli is genititve, hoc isn't.
