I won a blog award

Yay!  Sarah at An Abundance of Books has given me my first-ever blog award! 

Thanks so much for giving me the Life is Good blog award and the opportunity to pass it on to other bloggers. :) 
Here's what to do upon receiving this award:
1.Thank and link back to the person that gave this award.
2.Answer the 10 survey questions below.
3.Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic. (Though I'll never be able to pick that many, seeing as I'm new to the community!) 4.Contact the bloggers you’ve picked to let them know about the award.

So you see, it's like a never-ending chain of blogging awards and... awesomeness.
Here are my answers to the 10 survey questions: 

1. If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now? 
I don't blog anonymously, though not many people in 'real life' know that I blog at all.  I have an About Me page and one day I'll get around to posting some pictures of me and my dog or whatever.  So no, I've never really considered blogging anonymously.
2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side:  That's a tough one, though I definitely do have a stubborn side.  Last Friday my family and I were in an awful car wreck in the middle of an intersection (near the bookstore where I was planning on going that night).  The next day I really wanted to go pick up some books before we left for a 'mini'- vacation, but my mom was hesitant because of the wreck the day before. My car wasn't totaled, luckily.  But I went anyway-- not to let a little thing like PTSD stand between me and books, I guess.
3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?  I see me.  Okay, I see a teenage girl with big eyes and hair that is a straightening iron's worst nightmare.
4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?  Lemonade!
5.When you take time for yourself, what do you do?  Usually I hole up with a book (big surprise there), surf other blogs, or head over to the barn and take my horse Magic on a quiet trail ride through the woods. 
6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?  Well... I'm only sixteen.  I hope very much that high school is not the most important thing I will accomplish in my life. *shudders*  Yes, I hope to be a writer someday, writing YA fiction, or else an editor for a publishing house.  I also want to move out of my small town to go to college.  Short-term goals include finishing NaNoWriMo next month.
 7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever , the shy person, or always ditching?  Almost painfully shy.  I'm always the girl who finishes the work early and reads a book under her desk the rest of the class period. 
8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see? Wow, that's a strange question.  I hate to dodge answering it, but I really have no idea.  Picking one 'poignant moment' to define your life is harder than it sounds, see if it isn't.
9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?  I don't mind sharing about 'my true self' in my blog, like giving my opinions and whatnot, but at the same time this blog is called 'A Myriad of Books', not 'A Myriad of Things About Kat'.  In my posts, I try to keep the focus on books and their authors.  That's why it feels kind of weird answering these questions-- it's not what I'm used to.
10. If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Huh.  Let's see, I run a book blog; almost every other sentence that comes out of my mouth relates somehow to books... and I live in the Stone Age and don't have texting.  It's a safe bet I'd rather read a book. :)

And here are *drumroll* the blogs to which I'm passing on the award to...

Miss Page-Turner's City of Books

Book Infinity

The More You Read, The More You Know

The Diary of a Bookworm

Eternal Night

Congratulations to all of you!  If you already have this award, then I guess you really deserve it. :)

Thanks so much! This is a fun one -- I like learning more about each other. Sort of like one of those "chain letter" e-mails!
