Possible New Meme-- Need YOUR Help (Again)!

Along with plans for more reviews next year (as you know, I fell behind this year), along with a new blog look (Thanks to the amazing talents of JennJ!), I came up with another idea.
I'm going to host a new meme. I'm sure you are all familiar with the big ones, such as In My Mailbox (The Story Siren), Waiting on Wednesday (Breaking The Spine) and Teaser Tuesday (Should be Reading ).
However, my meme is going to be a bit like WoW, but different.
First, I would post it on a Sunday. Big deal, you're no doubt thinking. But this is the day I believe will work best.
Second, instead of highlighting a book we're waiting on, my plan is to "highlight"... *Drum Roll, Please*.... a book cover you've falling in love with for the week. Old, current, or not yet released, it's up to you. Personally, I'll mostly be sticking to the not yet released variety.
Come on, be honest, I know that many of you already judge a book by it's cover. Some of you have even (jokingly) called yourself a Cover Hussy and other similar names. (You know who you are-- and don't worry, I'm one as well!).
So why not spotlight the very covers that grab our attention, make our eyes glisten with lust, and compel us to click on the book to find out more about it? Sure, in the end the summary is pretty much the final decision, but until then, the cover tells almost as much, if not more, then a paragraph full of words.
Now, in order to get this meme up and running for the first run in January (Sunday, Jan. 3rd, to be exact) I'm going to need to get busy now. That means I need your input as well.
Most importantly, I need a name of this meme. I've had a few thoughts, but I would like to know which one you would like to see. Here are the options (so far):
  • Lusting for Covers
  • Lusting by the Cover
  • Captivating Finds

Of course, any ideas are more than welcome! I want something that grabs your attention, and try as I might, I've yet to come up with the perfect "AHA!" title for my meme idea.

So, my wonderful followers, here is your homework for the Holiday Season. Sometime between now and December 30th, I need you to (please!) leave a comment with your vote (or idea) for the title for my upcoming Cover Meme. Tell me which one of my ideas you like (or hate)--- feedback is very much needed and appreciated, good or bad.

And if you think this meme idea is pointless, say so---- right now, I want your honest opinion on my blog, and what I can do to improve it!

Also, any ideas for a possible button/graphic to go with the meme would be great as well. I'm going to try and make my own, if I can come up with a good idea, but if that fails or I run out of time, I may have to call upon the help of the talented JennJ again (hope you don't mind, girl!).
Thanks everyone!
Until Next Time,

Hey there girl I think this is a fabulouse idea! I am a huge cover lover myself lol and I would definitley do this one. I will admit I do judge a book by it's cover sometimes anyone that is honest I believe will say they do too it's what draws you to one you haven't heard of the author before etc. so I think it's an awesome idea you go for it girl. And you can call on me again for it if you wish hon I'll be happy to help with it. :)
