My Brain Won't Work--Winners, Awards, and News!

So the contest winner has been decided for my IN A HEARTBEAT contest. I had a whopping 156 entries (I gave up halfway double checking if anyone entered more than once), which is really surprising! It's actually been one of the best contest for a single book in regards to unique entries. At any rate the winner is:

Lisa (A Life Bound by Books)

Award Time! Yes I realize that this is really, really late.

This was awarded to me by Aimee from A Book Dork and by Lucy of Delightful Reviews. The rules are to: 1) List 10 honest things about yourself and 2) Pass it on to 10 other honest bloggers.
  1. I can't swim, float, paddle, or waddle in water. I am, however, capable of drinking it. Look at me go drink!
  2. I tried learning how to ride a bike when I was 9, 10, and 12. At the age of 12 I finally mastered pedaling on a bike whose breaks did not work. Shortly after learning to ride I ran into a pole (after I tried to emergency break twice times), chipped one of my front tooth, bleed profusely, and was promptly banned from riding ever again. Well that was a good 3 hours of having wind blowing through my hair!
  3. I can't seem to be able to bake chocolate chip cookies, but I can bake a chocolate chip cookie cake to perfection. Yeah I don't understand the logic behind that either as the cake version is just like the cookie version but bigger.
  4. Whenever one of my friends ask if I have a crush on someone I reply back saying that I'm asexual and reproduce by budding. It works every time.
  5. I am a Twi-hard so shut it. (Just not the really crazy ones).
  6. I hate the number '6'
  7. I have a bad cold right now so I dare you to get within two feet of me. I double dog dare you.
  8. I am rather shy in right life. But once I get to know you and we've become friends I get somewhat violent towards you. But don't take it the wrong way! It's my way of showing I care.
  9. I once mailed a book out using dimes, nickels, and pennies. Let's just say the USPS worker wasn't very happy with me.
  10. I dislike hanging posters above my bed. Why? Because I have an unhealthy fear that it'll fall on my face whilst I sleep and I'll suffocate because of it.
I'm passing this on to:
  1. Dannie
  2. Carol
  3. Kate
  4. Lenore
  5. Steph Su
  6. Krystle
  7. Lenore
  8. Diana
  9. Jenna
  10. Sharon
