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!
Not to be dramatic but… I think Inky might be the love of my life.
Inky usually likes to stick to the shadows, keeping to himself and reading quietly. But if the Pond’s in danger, he’s not going to hide behind the scenes! He’s ready to fight alongside Xiaolong on the frontlines to help defend the Pond against the darkness that’s threatening his home and his friends.
