I’m Joining The Pondathon!

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 wasn’t really planning on joining the Pondathon, but after seeing everyone joining and designing a completely adorable character, I decided to join after all. The Pondathon is a readathon that I know that I can do and it seems to be a lot of fun to do as well! Not to mention, there’s a whole community doing it! It is going to be fun doing this with a lot of friends and following along the story of the Pondathon as it goes on.

Note: All art on this post is from CW, who is hosting this awesome readathon!

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.

To Track or Not To Track? – Progress While Reading

NDPL

When it comes to keeping track of your reading’s progress, I am always on it. I put down what page I left on and figure out how many pages I read at the time. I have been doing this for seven years while using GoodReads. It was a steady and useful habit I had until October came around.

I had started a brand new book right when October started. The previous book I finished was right at the end of September. I forgot the change the status of the book to “Currently Reading,” but I figured I would just change it on a later date. I even forgot to change the status and mark down what page I was on before I left my weeklong trip. Ever since I my return, I still haven’t updated it.
