  1. Well done Phil – quite a milestone and an excellent help to all in the trade and outside of it. Yours has been a difficult balance to achieve but I believe that you have broadly got it just right – so thanks.

  2. Yes, thanks, Phil for keeping so up to date with all the latest news – invaluable. How come suddenly all these people have latched on to older posts?

  3. From across the pond, congratulations Phil on two years of dedicated service and encouragement to Christian book shops in the UK. I’m thankful we recently discovered you online and I hope we can continue to share mutual concerns and interests.
