In which the Meridian today learns of his faithful canine companion's incomplete understanding of Elizabethan philosophies of learning

The titular companion, in the dining room, ready for more Bacon.

I invite you to divine at what point Scruffy appears to have stopped reading and decided to act upon the advice in the following passage:

"Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention."

Sir Francis Bacon
English author, courtier, & philosopher (1561 - 1626)
