    Past Continuous - adverbials of time

    When we use Past Continuous we often use 'yesterday at 5' etc. i.e. we state which day and hour sth. was happening.

    eg.

    I was reading a book yesterday at 5.

    Is it correct to change the order in the adverbial of time and say:

    I was reading a book at 5 yesterday.

    Thanks for replies in advance .
