Versatile Blogger Award

Carmel of Rabid-Reads has given me a blog award-- thanks so much, Carmel!
It's hard to believe I've received two awards, seeing as I still feel more than a little overwhelmed by the many challenges of running a blog.  I feel like I've barely gotten started and yet today I realized that A Myriad of Books is officially three weeks old!  Over the next few weeks, I'm going to be hosting my first giveaway( :) !!), so check back soon for updates on that. 
Well, without further ado (or mindless blathering), the Versatile Blogger Award rules:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass this on to 12 other great bloggers you recently discovered.
  4. Contact the selected bloggers and tell them about their awards. 
7 Things About Me 

  • Where to start?  Well, I'm obsessed with mythology, which I think is probably a rare trait in teenagers. (Ok, it's probably an unusual trait in anyone.)  Arthurian, Greek, Celtic, Egyptian, I love it all.  I can remember the first time my parents asking me about possible college majors and I said, "What can you do with a degree in mythology?"  To me, there's nothing cooler than fickle thunder gods, three-headed dogs, terrible fire-breathing dragons,Celtic spirals, ancient monuments packed with tourists... you get the idea.  One of my all-time favorite books is Marion Zimmer Bradley's Mists of Avalon-- if you haven't read it, read it!  
  •   I'm a long-time fan of Spongebob Squarepants and I can to this day quote every single episode by heart.  Other TV fetishes include: The Nightmare Before Christmas, Glee, and the canceled NBC show Heroes. (Anyone remember that one?) 
  • I own approximately 317 books, including manga and graphic novels-- just counted the spines on my shelves, though I'm sure I missed a few. 
  • I'm a big trivia buff and on the Quiz Bowl team at my high school.  My Dad's nickname for me is 'Wikipeida'. 
  • I love to sing, especially cheesy show tunes, but I have an atrocious singing voice... my sister has several times threatened dismemberment after happening across me singing along to the radio. 
  • I have a Yorkshire Terrier named Zoey who always lies on my feet while I blog, and whom I'm simply obsessed with.  One day I'm going to be that infamously eccentric lady with the twenty cats, except with dogs instead.  I just know it. 
  • I'm obsessed with geography and particularly the incredibly addictive Travelpod game: Traveler IQ.  It took me months to win the game the first time, but now I can almost always beat it.  One day I really want to travel the world and see all of the places I can pinpoint with my mouse. :) I'm afraid I can't possibly pass this award onto twelve other bloggers, firstly because I'm very new to the Blogosphere and secondly, because I passed on another blog award to some of my favorite fellow bloggers not even two weeks ago.  But I can pick four of new favorites I've only very recently discovered:
