Thank you for your application. I have notified the Grants Committee to review and offer comments on what they think of the application. -- Katie Chan (WMUK) (talk) 16:18, 4 September 2014 (BST)

Hello Harry. Thank you for your application. Overall, I'm happy to give this my support as it obviously falls within our mission and as a long-standing contributor, you can be trusted to make the most of this book. This book will of-course become part of the library so other users can make use of it if they wish. On the price, Amazon marketplaces sellers seem to be selling new copies for quite a bit less than Amazon themselves. As of now, betterworldbooksltd are the cheapest. However, I personally would go with Speedyhen Ltd as they have a better customer rating and are only a tiny bit more expensive. They're selling it for £33.95 plus £2.80 postage, giving a total price of £36.75. I agree that there's no point buying a used copy as there hardly any cheaper than a new one and we wouldn't be getting good value for money. On getting the book to you, I think sending it directly to your address is the easiest option – this can be done whether the charity orders for you or you order itself and ask to be reimbursed. I hope that helps. CT Cooper · talk 21:50, 5 September 2014 (BST)

Okay, Harry, I take you've got the book okay. Thank you for the link. CT Cooper · talk 22:29, 25 October 2014 (BST)

Looks good to me Harry, and I'd be very happy to support you as a longstanding contributor. Office can advise on purchase and any monitoring of the grant. As User:CT Cooper says the book will become part of the WMUK library, so it'd be good to just monitor how you're getting on with it in case your priorities shift but someone else wants to pick up on it, but I think the description you give of a lightweight project to pickup as and when sounds generally very worthwhile. Thanks! Sjgknight (talk) 14:11, 6 September 2014 (BST)
