Heartfelt thanks to everyone in YVR who voted PFB best independent bookstore in this year's Georgia Straight readers' poll.  PFB has come a long way in twelve and a half years, something I could not have accurately predicted on day #1, sitting behind a battered school desk with a paper Hilroy ledger, a cigar-box float, and a brand new shingle (handmade by my dad and I, vinyl lettering courtesy Steven Shearer) out on the sidewalk.

If you're successful in business, you're given progressively more complicated problems to solve.  The problems never go away, but they do get more interesting over time.

I am very fortunate to have been given a complex set of interlocking problems, a great group of staff, one of the most ruthless and technologically savvy competitors on the planet, and a deeply contrarian temperament.  The work isn't easy, but it is rewarding, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
