    You’ve read and blogged about a LOT of books in four years, and built up a great resource for other readers and bloggers. I’m glad you’ve stuck with it.

    Happy Blogiversary, Stu! This is really wonderful! I have enjoyed reading your posts and have discovered many new writers and books through your reviews. I got Raymond Queneau’s ‘The Flight of Icarus’ after reading your review of it, and I am reading the book now 🙂 Hope you have a fun day! Loved Winston’s picture too.

    Happy blogiversary from me too, Stu. (Hi Vishy, I hope you don’t mind me stealing your word!)
    I was just talking about you the other day to another blogger I know and about how much influence you’ve had around the world: you’ve transformed what many of us read by introducing us to contemporary works in translation. If the queen doesn’t give you a knighthood soon, I will!

      You are welcome, Lisa 🙂 And I totally agree with you on giving the knighthood to Stu.

        Vishy, we shall have to have a proper ceremony with an international guest-list of all Stu’s fans. (I’m sure I can find a tiara somewhere). Then all we need is a sponsor who will provide the free plane tickets for us to descend on Britain en masse …

    Absolutely – well done! I’ve just started a blog, Books Now! and I know how hard it is to build an audience, so your achievement is fantastic! I’m enjoying your blog and hope you can have a look at mine sometime:
