New book that you want:

I’m off this weekend for some quality time in Canada. After a weeklong conference in Toronto, I’ll be going other places yet to be determined. This will be my first trip to Toronto post-pandemic (it’s usually an annual destination for me but I was thwarted by an early winter storm last year) and I am much excited, particularly following my big recent Toronto update. If you see me in Loblaws, say hello.
