    felt in

    Dear teachers,

    What does it mean in the sentence?

    His last book was doing very well indeed, and he felt in a generous mood.

    Thanks in advance.

    He had written a book (which had been published) and it was selling well.

    "felt in a generous mood" means 'was in a generous mood'.

    Say, But what does "felt in" mean?

    Yep, he was in a generous mood. He was feeling good about how his book was doing and he in the mood to part with some money (perhaps to buy dinner for some friends).
