Dewey's Read-a-Thon update 3...

Well I fear the distractions just won't end. Let's put this bluntly, shall we? Max is exhausting. :P Ahhh, but Rich and Gray arrived home a while ago so they are now the target of some of his non-stop chatter and, "Let's do this," "Watch this," "Can we do this?" Sheesh--you'd think he was three-years-old or something. :P

Another distraction:

Max and I found a milk snake in the flower garden. He was hiding so this was the best look we got at him. So pretty. We also found a tree frog while we were moving logs out in the back yard from the tree we had to cut down earlier this week, but I didn't have my camera then.

Anyway, I have managed to read 10 tales from Philip Pullman's Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm. Determined to finish this book...and maybe maybe maybe another tonight. Yeah, like that maybe is ever going to happen.

Ah, yes, the ever-loving distractions of family. Gotta love 'em. Love the snake pic!

You're doing great, Debi. I, on the other hand, have read for a total of 1/2 hour and am about to start an audio book while I fix dinner. This is why I didn't sign up, lol.

Milk snakes are indeed pretty, with the colors and all. I hope you are having a lot of good reading moments too :)
