Karen GoatKeeper (goodreadscomkaren_goatkeeper) | 100 comments I'm in at least a little. I'm working on 8. Read a book starting with the letter S. The book is The Sultan's Seal by Jenny White.
If my library reopens on time, I'll do 2. Read a book borrowed from a library. It's been moving and all the shelving didn't arrive on time so opening day is delayed.
"The Sultan's Seal" was an interesting book. Not what I expected at all.
I read a stand alone book "The Ghost, the Gold and the Whippoorwill" too but have been having trouble listing it as it isn't in the database.
My library reopened so I finished "Tail Gait" as a book borrowed from the library.
For now I am wandering off reading "The Magic Garden" which doesn't fit any of the categories but is nice anyway.
