Today marks the tenth anniversary of this blog. Over that time I have published 5,555 posts. (Roughly 1.5 posts a day, every day.) In addition I have garnered a dedicated following on Twitter and StockTwits. Last year I noted the challenge in keeping things going as a finance/investment blogger. One of the reasons we keep going is that great feedback we get from readers (and bloggers) alike. Below is a recent note I received.

As a regular reader for a couple of years now, I just wanted to thank you directly for the wonderful service you provide. I have learned so much from your posts, and it would be near impossible for an individual reader to ‘case the waterfront’ to find all the articles you bring together on one page. Well done, and long may you continue!  – M.G.

As a thank you to all of our readers I want to do a big book giveaway. In honor of the tenth anniversary of Abnormal Returns I am going to give away (at least) ten recent finance and investing books. All I ask is make sure you are getting all you can out of our offerings. Do you subscribe to our daily e-mail? Do you follow us on Twitter and StockTwits? Do you know where to find our RSS feed?

As I have the last few blogiversaries take a few moments to to kick back and listen to this from Cracker. “Feel thankful for the small things today” and substitute “blogiversary” for “birthday”:
