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.
It's Christmas Eve and the worst blizzard for fifty years has blanketed Gracetown. But as well as snowflakes, love is in the air - and appearing in the most unexpected ways . . . Who'd have thought a freezing hike from a stranded train would end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger? Or that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow could lead to romance with an old friend? Or that the path to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks?
Oh God, I wish it was snowing in Australia. It is hot. So bloody hot. It's meant to peak at 45° today and I am working and then I have to do food shopping so I am not looking forward to today. Also my country is still on fire. Two fire fighters have already died and NSW is existing under a blanket of smoke and our Prime Minister fucked off to Hawaii. Fucking sick. So watching all these wintery Christmas movies has been great escapism.
Like every avid reader, I have a huge book wishlist at all times.
It comes with the territory I suppose. I'm always adding things to it. Usually books I've read from the library and loved so much that I want a copy of my own.
Home Alone, round 2. Although I complained about the bad parenting the whole time, I did actually enjoy Home Alone and it had everything to do with Kevin. That kid was carrying that movie on his back, all on his own. I'm looking forward to what Kevin does next!
