Spellbook reading interrupted - spell still learned
You still learn a spell despite getting interrupted by a monster while reading

If you start reading a spellbook and then get interrupted by a monster while reading, the game asks whether you want to keep reading or not, as intended. However, if you answer "no" to this prompt, you stop reading, yet learn the spell in question immediately (or fail learning the spell and suffer possible consequences of failed reading).

This seems to affect other actions too, not only reading. For example, eating can be interrupted, yet is still finished immediately if answered "no" to the prompt.

Have you checked to see if it uses a 'charge' from the spellbook?

Yes it does. The result seems to just the same as if you finished reading normally, except it takes place immediately after answering "no" to the prompt.

It's amazing how many serious bugs were introduced by exchanging the internal REPL for the event based system. Yet another such issue. Now fixed.

I noticed this also happens while eating and cooking. Both actions "complete" early, and successfully, by hitting "no" while interrupted. Just wanted to bring it up, incase Creator wasn't aware that it was also affected.

On the positive side, learning Wish has never been this easy ;)

In r67 this still happens with teleportitis, as in you can read a book without getting interrupted by teleportitis. I don't think there was anything about changing how teleportitis and reading works so this is probably a bug.

In R66 when teleportitis kicks in, you get to decide whether you want to continue reading the spellbook, still using turns for reading. So not a bug but intended behaviour, probably. If it's again wrecked in R67 somehow, it probably needs its own bug report.
