Weekly Book Wrap-Up #69 – Tons Of Dead Fish!

Saturday, April 06, 2019
With the Weekly Book Wrap-Up, I give you a bit of an insight into all the new books that have arrived at my place.

No matter if I won a giveaway, got approved for a reviewer´s copy, an ARC or just bought one myself. Everything that I add to my shelves, in what way ever and read during the past week or am still reading, I will write about it. And maybe I tell you a bit about the upcoming things on Inkvotary, that is if I don´t forget it and have something to share with you *smile*

I am linking up with Tynga´s Reviews / Reading Reality and Caffeinated Reviewer and hope you´ll have fun reading it and maybe get the one or the other book inspiration.

Stacking The Shelves #69

I was a good girl this week. Bought NO books *YAY*. But my week was not bookless at all. Today two RC´s arrived and caught me by surprise. And I am a bit shocked, that I have not published any reviews the past week. As usual, I display on the left side, the German cover, on the right, the English cover.

Sunday Post #26

About ten days ago, I took the picture below, not knowing, that only a few days later our towns little river would be a deadly and dangerous place. At first, I thought it is a bad joke because I couldn´t see anything unusual. Turns out we´ve got lucky. Only a few miles down the river from where I live, some poison liquid (a mixture of some chemical stuff) got into the water and there is apparently strong suspicion (no evidence yet!) that one of the local companies is the reason why tons of fish had to die. Investigations are ongoing.

The area where I live is mostly used by dog walkers or kids because they all can easily access the river, watch frogs, ducks, and fish in their natural habitat and stretch their legs.


Sometimes you can see the ducks flying around. There is no fence, no cage or whatsoever. It is an amazing feeling when you are walking there and suddenly you realize there is a duck only a few inches away sitting in the green grass right next to your feet. The colors they have - gorgeous.

Thankfully the ducks who live in the area close to my place, are not among the dead animals. But alone the thought, that tons of fish are dead now, because of the poison that got into the water – Grrrrrr!
It will take years of recovery to get that natural habitat back to where it was until a few days ago. Could scream!

Happy reading

  1. I'm sad to hear about the release of poison into your water. Hopefully, the source of the poison will be identified and fined and it won't happen again. Poison was often released into the air when I was a child. Now that is much less likely to happen.

    I'd like to invite you to share your post each week at Sunday Salon and join in the conversations there, too. I've just taken over this meme and I hope to use it to encourage more book talk in the world. The linky will be posted each Saturday on my blog and on Facebook.

    1. Thank you for the invite. I will check it out and see if I hop on board *smile*. Thank you for stopping by.

  2. Ooh Two Dark Reigns! I love that series...

    I'm so sorry to hear about the fish- that's terrible!

    1. People around here are very angry and want a stricter law now. It is so sad when you walk in that area and see the damage with your own eyes. Thanks for stopping by, Greg.

  3. Poisoning of waterways is awful, I hope your river recovers.

    Have a great reading week :)

    1. I hope that too. This river is part of a great landscape and our park and I don´t wanna miss that. Thanks for your visit.

  4. It sucks when humans destroy nature. I’m glad the ducks didn’t die. Have a good week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Yes, that is right. Especially when those, who are responsible, don´t report that something went wrong. Thank you for stopping by.

  5. I'm worried if the ducks are still there they will be drinking the water and will die at some point. I saw that Trump signed an executive order this week allowing mining companies to dump into waterways. UGH. I hope they figure it out there. Happy reading!

    1. The ducks are still there, well and obviously happy. Usually companies and their water system are not connected to our rivers in a direct way. Police investigation is ongoing. Thanks for your visit.
