StoryGraph Onboarding Reading Challenge 2022

This year I’m making the leap to try out a different website/app to track my reading: StoryGraph. For years now I have been using Goodreads to keep statistics on what I’m reading, but there is increasing criticism levelled at this website so I have decided to give StoryGraph a go. 

They have set up a little onboarding challenge for new members with six prompts that you can see here

StoryGraph 2022 Reading Goal

Although I’m trying out a new platform, I’ll stick with my annual goal of 80 books which seems to be an achievable number for me. 

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

Pondathon II: The Quiet Pond’s Story-Driven Readathon. A small spade and watering can are crossed with vines wrapped around it frame the words Pondathon II. Three little forest sprites - one with a leaf on its head, another with twigs on its head like antlers, and a mushroom on the other’s head - sit on the words ‘Pondathon’.

What is the Pondathon?

Pondathon II is a story-driven and gardening-themed readathon hosted and run by CW from The Quiet Pond. The aim of the Pondathon II readathon is to read books to earn plants and decorate your own little garden so that we can restore the forest together. More information about the readathon can be found here.

Mount TBR Reading Challenge

Image is of a snowy mountain with lots of rocky scree, a lake and pine trees. The text says Mount TBR Reading Challenge.

I’m attempting this challenge to try to make a dent in my to-read shelves (plural) and am aiming for Mount Blanc which is 24 books. It looks very straightforward and you can sign up here.
