There’s a mystery shopper out there, and it might be your shop he visits next: the mysterious Mr Charmley, aka ‘Highland Host’, has been touring a few of the UK’s Christian bookshops and reporting back on them on his blog, Strict and Particular.
Look out for him coming your way — apparently you can recognise him by his ‘Spurgeon’ style beard — and be sure to give him a warm, strict and particular welcome.
