Pondathon! Sign-up and Q1/Round 1 progress

I am so excited for another Pondathon readathon, and the focus for this year’s Pondathon is on gardening! Here’s are links to the information post and sign-up post to learn more and to sign up if you’re interested in joining us and building a garden of your own! Basically, the gist is this is a year-long readathon that’s divided into 4 quarters, with several rounds in each quarter. Each round has some quests and companion quests, and the goal is to read books, fulfill the quest prompts, and grow a beautiful garden! Here’s a useful portal that rounds up the most important links.
