I have thought about doing this, but I was afraid that was too severe!!

I don't have to take the books away, I only have to remind them that it's the consequence if they don't put them away once we turn the lights out. Isn't it a great problem to have?! And it's so adorable to check on them later and see that one of them has fallen asleep clutching a book! I always hoped our kids would end up being readers. smile
