HBRC Day 18 – Create A Collage

HBRC 2012

Today’s task is to create a collage of the covers of books you read in 2012.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to make this happen. Goodreads shows my read count as 364, but 6 of those were Did Not Finish (and I don’t think I should count those), and I know I read a few in the library at school that didn’t make it onto the Goodreads count because they couldn’t be found in their database and I just never took to the time to add them.

Even so, turning over 350 book covers into a collage is a bit of a challenge for me, technology wise. It doesn’t help that today is a teacher work day.  I finally decided to to do a screen shot of my Goodreads stats for 2012 and then prettied it up with a nice frame.  I also liked this idea because it breaks the books down by number of stars I gave each book. Maybe I’ll print this out and post it in the library to see if my students are impressed or not.

    The collage is so pretty and cute and practical. I never thought of a book cover collage.
