Am I going too far?

Last night was the 4th of July and it was a lot of fun. For the first time in our families history none of my kids were crying or asking to leave early because of the ear splitting, chest thumping, heart stopping explosions of fireworks.

As we were leaving the house I decided to grab the small travel book light that my wife had purchased for my birthday earlier this year. One of our friends mentioned that that is when my reading kick had gone too far, by bringing a book light and book to the fireworks show.

For a minute I was thinking maybe she was right. I only did read few pages with the book light, after it was pretty dark but while we listed to the band play favorite songs from years gone by and everyone did motions to YMCA. Reading only lasted a few minutes until my kids decided it was time to wrestle again. This morning as I thought about I figured that I only did read about 10 to 15 pages over the course of the 4 hours. But it was 10 to 15 pages that I wouldn’t have read had I not brought a book with me. Most of the pages were read as I was riding the city bus back to pick up the car for my family but I did read 2 or 3 pages with the book light.

Did I go too far? Nope, not at all. In fact, I might need to consider bringing a book light to more locations. 🙂
