I love the smell of Elmer's Glue in the morning.

So you know, it was one thing having this blog when it was just to talk about my grad project. But now that I'm branching out, I feel like there's an obvious question.

What is this blog bringing to the kidlitosphere that you can't get anywhere else?

Well, a bunch of things. But since I'm pretty sure my wit and charm aren't really selling points across the internets, and also because I just moved into a new place and don't have a job [side note: hire me! I'm witty and charming!] and need decorations and like to collage, I'm going with this:

Every day, I'm going to do a small cut-paper collage of a different children's book cover. Each one will be done on a 4x6 index card, and it will go on the wall above my work area. (I will have to relocate what's currently up there, which is a cardstock representation of Adam Rex's Guide to Boovs, but those should fit elsewhere just as well.)

Everything beyond that is up to you. Any suggestions for book covers? Should I only do books I've read? Books I like? Books that have critical acclaim? For books with multiple editions, should I do the covers I like best or the covers I own or the covers that are easiest?

Guide me, kidlitosphere! I want to bring something into your lives!
