it is truth universally known that a book blogger falls out of reading after a few years of blogging. (THIS IS A LIE BUT ALSO TOO TRUE) (or maybe it’s just me attacking myself h a h) but all of that is going to change this year!! maybe!! maybe not!!! who knows. at least we’re trying! by participating in fun & exciting reading events like SUBTLE ASIAN BOOK CLUB and now: #PONDATHON. (goodreads challenge? who cares about HER?)
it’s funny because at the beginning of 2020, i’d decided that i wouldn’t care about the amount of books/pages i read (hence my lack of enthusiasm for gr challenge) and focus on the quality of reading. reading for myself rather doing it out of obligation. living for my values rather than for the sake of living. but then i started a book club & now i’m joining CW from the quiet pond for #pondathon !!!
what is pondathon?
i would explain all the details myself, but i feel like it would be easier to just read her many resourceful blog posts. in short: it’s a readathon from january 24th, 2020 to march 6th, 2020. WOOT. but it’s not just a readathon. you score points, go on side quests, join a team, create characters, and so on. and i’m so excited to read again!!! not like i haven’t been reading but… now i’m more inspired. go team!
introducing my pond character:
this is probably my favorite thing!!!! a little character to represent my reading adventures. meet bun: a soft but secretly fierce fox. weapon of choice: bow and arrow. favorite accessory: a yellow flower crown because you have to be fierce and fashionable. she/her.
