I'm in the annual Hospital Club 100 list again ("The Hospital Club 100, compiled in association with The Independent, ranks the most influential creative and media people. Here are this year’s ‘Established’ and ‘Emerging’ winners in each of the ten categories "). If I'm reading this correctly, I'm the "Emerging" winner in the Books and Literary category. The Book Depository gets a namecheck as RSB's sister site (!) but -- regardless of how slightly squiffy their biography of me is -- it is always nice to be in.

Thanks to all those who voted for me!

Perhaps Britain’s most influential literary blogger, Thwaite has dedicated his site to reviewing the best in literature, poetry, philosophy and history, and offers a forum for sparky discussions on the merits of new publications. Thwaite also runs the sistersite, Book Depository, and has spoken at the London International Book Fair and been a panellist at the Oxford Literary Festival.
