Blog 10th Birthday (and Giveaway!)

Ten years ago, at this exact moment, I started Miss Print. It’s been a crazy ride and I’m so happy to have had this blog and the people I have met because of it as constants in my life over the last decade.

(If you’re only here for the giveaway just scroll down.)

Last year I talked about books I found because I started blogging. This feels like a very full circle moment for me. Ten years ago I was 21 years old, finishing college, and getting ready to apply to grad school–all factors that led to the creation of this blog. Now, ten years later, I’m a full-time librarian and have been able to parlay so many of the skills I learned and developed as a blogger into my professional life. I have made some of my best friends because of this blog and connected with so many wonderful authors and readers. Truly, I can’t imagine what my life would look like now if I hadn’t created this blog ten years ago. It’s unimaginable.

And what’s a big birthday without gifts? This year I’m giving away three prizes.

One winner will receive a bookish tote bag with this stack of ten of my all-time favorite books.

Two other winners will receive a personalized list of ten book recommendations from me based on what they tell me about likes/dislikes/owned books/etc. (This is something I do as part of my work too so again, full circle!)


  • One winner will win a bookish tote of ten of my favorite books.
  • Two winners will receive a personalized list of ten book recommendations created by me.
  • Giveaway will run from August 12 to August 31. (Winners will be notified September 1. If I don’t hear back from the winners by September 3, I will pick a new winner from the entry pool as needed.)


Spread the word, share the love, and head over to Rafflecopter to enter my giveaway.

This week was a kind of weird one for me because one of my tweets went viral. A lot of the excitement has died down by now but if you saw that whole “name your top 5 books” thing . . . it was me. I’ll be doing a full post on it soon with copious screen caps. For now shoutout to all my friends who put up with excessive discussions of my (fleeting) twitter fame!

Also: My blog turned ten on Saturday. What a wild ride it’s been.

Here’s my latest from Instagram:
