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 and Caffeinated Reviewer and hope you´ll have fun reading it and maybe get the one or the other book inspiration.

Stacking The Shelves #144

I was a good girl. No new books. 

Sunday Post #101

Last Sunday, after I had posted my Sunday Post, I noticed that it had been the 100 posts *yay* But since Blogger doesn´t allow me to edit a post after it was published, I had no choice but to wait until today to announce it. Blogger has become a bitch when you want to edit a post after you hit publish because it screws with your already existing editing. I visited some blogs, did some blogging stuff, and tried to read.

On Monday I needed almost four hours to clean the garden path from all the ivy, soil, and moss and was completely exhausted afterward. I saw many people being out and about in the shopping malls to get the last Christmas despite our politicians asking us not to go. But what did they expect? With the lockdown starting Wednesday it was quite clear that that was going to happen. I stayed at home, except for some food shopping but other than that I was at home.

On Thursday and Friday, I was busy getting the last bush roots out and now the garden is as clean as a baby bud. Only the stump is left but that will have to wait until next year before we can pull it out completely.

On Friday afternoon I discovered that I was part of a local newspaper article. It was an article about the moving of our library into the new building. One of the library ladies had apparently told the reporter that one lady (me) had borrowed a huge pile of books and that it had made the other library lady, Mrs. B. incredibly happy. What a joy to read that while almost all other news is about the virus. Later in the evening, I was talking with my stepmom on the phone about our Christmas plans. My dad and she want me to celebrate Christmas with them. So, a lot of precautionary preparation for me to make that possible. I ordered my Christmas gift and am curious now if it will arrive next Wednesday as the shop's delivery information told me. 

Saturday, I did nothing but reading. It felt strange. We had cold but very sunny weather and I had nothing to do in the backyard. But it was also a good day because it was my Dad´s birthday. The entire family either called or organized a video call to wish him a happy birthday. Nobody showed up in person and my stepmom was happy about that although it confused my dad a bit because of his dementia. But we had fun while being on the phone together because we both were watching Biathlon on TV and talking about it.

Today I was up early. Made further reading progress and cleaned the garden tools I had borrowed from a neighbor. Now I hope that I will have some time to visit some blogs and enjoy the rest of my Sunday. 

How was your week? Stay safe and healthy.

Happy reading



  1. It seems you are very productive. I feel like I am not getting things finished even though I am, just not everything. I wish you a joyful holiday season with peace.

    Anne - Books of My Heart

    1. I was very productive, indeed. Not the usual me *lol* Merry Christmas to you too, Anne!

  2. Congrats on the article appearance! That's neat. I remember you mentioning that library situation in a recent Sunday Post...

    Hope you have wonderful holiday! Be well!!!

    1. Thank you, Greg! I will never forget the happy face Mrs. B showed when she scanned all the books I had piled up right in front of her *smile* Merry Christmas and happy reading!

  3. Happy birthday to your dad! And great work on the garden. Mine is a disaster, and I just leave it that way. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Yes, I remember you saying that about your garden in another Sunday Post of mine. And thank you for the birthday wishes. I will tell my dad about it on Christmas Eve. Have a great week too and Merry Christmas to you!

  4. It must have been fun to find yourself in the newspaper ! I'm glad your father had many birthday calls (instead of visits), it's better for him even if he wasn't aware... Your sunday looked good to me, reading, sun, winter cold ! Have a merry Christmas :)

    1. I had to read it twice to believe it. Was a nice surprise for sure *smile* Merry Christmas to you too.
