When our kids were growing up, one of our family traditions was Friday Night at the Movies. On school nights we didn’t turn on movies (and we never watched TV–rotten reception), so by the time Friday night came we were eager to watch a good show.

I remember one Friday night the power went out. No movies. Bummer. Before any of us got too disappointed, however, we decided to have Friday Night at the Books. We read together by kerosene lamp. It was so cozy and fun.
