Foreign Fridays?

So I've got it in my head to start a new feature on the blog and I want to know what you think. Recently, I've been on a mad hunt to find out which of my authors are published in Russian and potentially Lithuanian. (Not that I speak either language yet, but I'm studying Russian in school right now.)

Many authors do have a special section on their site with pictures of their foreign covers. I've always found these fun to look at, even if I can't understand the words (after all there's no guarantee that the title is the same). Sadly, not every author out there does this.

So here's what I'm thinking... I would like to have a special feature each Friday where I display the foreign editions of YA books. Here are my questions for you:

1. Does this sound like a cool idea to you at all?
2. Which format do you prefer?
a. Feature multiple foreign editions of just one author in each post.
b. Feature multiple authors/books of just one language in each post.

Leave me a message in the comments, or email me at wantmyya at gmail dot com.

Authors, if you're interested in having your foreign editions featured please send me an note at the same email.

This does sound like fun! I think you can usually find a lot about foreign editions on GoodReads too.
