I am participating in one reading challenge, one blogger game and one meme for this new year. I have found that these activities keep me on a somewhat organized schedule in addition to posting book reviews. This week I was pleasantly surprised to receive many comments from fellow book readers and so a big "thank you" to one and all for stopping by LadyD Books!
Books Bought is a meme that Cindy hosts on her blog, Cindy's Love of Books.
If you want to take part all you have to do is list the books you have physically bought in a week, every two weeks or whenever. Just leave a comment on her blog. Cindy adds:
DISCLAIMER: I can not be responsible for accessive book buying that this meme might cause.
Here's my list:
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett and Ron Barrett
Product DescriptionIf food dropped like rain from the sky, wouldn't it be marvelous! Or would it? It could, after all, be messy. And you'd have no choice. What if you didn't like what fell? Or what if too much came? Have you ever thought of what it might be like to be squashed flat by a pancake?
From the PublisherThe tiny town of Chewandswallow was very much like any other tiny town except for its weather which came three times a day, at breakfast, lunch and dinner. But it never rained rain and it never snowed snow and it never blew just wind. It rained things like soup and juice. It snowed things like mashed potatoes. And sometimes the wind blew in storms of hamburgers. Life for the townspeople was delicious until the weather took a turn for the worse. The food got larger and larger and so did the portions. Chewandswallow was plagues by damaging floods and storms of huge food. The town was a mess and the pople feared for their lives. Something had to be done, and in a hurry.

I like the book, very creative and imaginative. Price? $6.99... What do you think on this one... have you read it? It's a bit too advanced for my 2 Grandsons but I'll wait as I have placed Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in their library for future reading. Although I must confess, both are avid pasta lovers!
