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.

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

I figured since I’m an aspiring cat lady, my lil buddy is Meowshi of the Mountain. She’s an archer and refuses to back down!character card blank.jpg

The basic premise is, post up what you’ve got currently checked out (even ebooks and eaudio!), and see where you are next week! (This mostly started as a way to hold myself accountable when I had like, thirty books out at a time.)

Wizards in Space, Vol. 4

I am so so so thankful to be part of such a quirky, weird, beautiful, creative community with the online Harry Potter community. Wizards in Space, a literary magazine, was born of such a community. The goal is to highlight and feature marginalized voices, and it’s certainly given me a lot to think about! It’s full of wonderful short stories, poetry, essays, and art. And the fourth issue has, I think, some of my favorite pieces I’ve ever read.
