Pondathon announcement !

Pondathon: The Quiet Pond's story-driven readathon. Image: Two swords with vines wrapped around it frame the words 'Pondathon', with three little forest sprites sitting on top. One forest sprite has a leaf on its head, the middle has twigs for horns, and the right has a mushroom on its head.

I’m so happy to announce that I will be participating in the Pondathon !

What is the Pondathon?

The Pondathon is a co-operative and story-driven readathon hosted and run by CW from The Quiet Pond. The aim of the Pondathon is to read books and collect points to protect the friends over at The Quiet Pond from the encroaching malevolent forces that threaten our friends in the forest.

Have fun participating in the Pondathon readathon by joining one of five teams, each with a unique way to collect points and signing up! You can also follow the story of the Pondathon as it unfolds, and participants can also complete ‘side quests’ during the readathon to collect extra points. The readathon takes place from January 24th 2020 to March 7th 2020. More information about the readathon can be found here.

My Pond Character

Here is my little pond character ! This design was made using Pixlr, which I’d never used before today and honestly I don’t know why because it’s amazing and I can’t believe I didn’t even know it existed, and the character card and art pieces made by @artfromafriend ! All the art there is amazing and you should definitely check out the Character cards of all the other participants !

My Pond Character is called Alexia, and she’s the Cocoa hoarder! Alexia is a soft beige cat who wears a flower crown and likes to make hot cocoa drinks for her friends. She is part of team Gen, and will do everything she can to help protect her friends, and the pond.

My Pondathon TBR

I haven’t planned a Pondathon TBR yet, but I’m planning on making one in the next week, before the beginning of the readathon. I’m hoping this will keep me motivated to read different books and not stay in my comfort zone too much !

Are you participating in the Pondathon ? Do you have a set TBR already ? Feel free to link it in the comments so I can check out the books you’re planning to read !
N.B.: This post was made using the template provided by CW @ the quiet pond !
