Pondathon II: The Quiet Pond's Story-Driven Readathon

Pondathon II is a year-long gardening-themed readathon hosted by The Quiet Pond! Help us restore the forest by reading to earn plants and decorate your own garden. For more information about Pondathon, read our Readathon Information Post.

Your one-stop page for all Pondathon II readathon links, current quests and available rewards, and up-to-date information.

Important Update:

All Pondathon dates (except for Companion Quests) have been moved to begin and end one day earlier. Therefore, quests, rounds, and quarters that were originally scheduled to begin on Mondays (NZT) have now been changed to begin on Sundays (NZT). This is so that the Pondathon does not conflict with our other feature at The Quiet Pond, the Book News.

I sincerely apologise for any inconveniences caused by this. Existing quests have been changed to reflect this new date change. 💛
