I try to read for half an hour before I go to bed. I find it relaxing and it helps me fall asleep easily.

Last year I went through a rough time, so every night before I went to bed I used to read a book for kids to relax and have nice thoughts.

I have insomnia and a dr recommended I read to fall asleep. I had to laugh since I’m known to miss sleep when a book is too good to put down.

My day is incomplete without reading but I prefer it at night time before going to bed where everyone is sleep so I can focus more on my book without any disturbance.

YES! but it's not new books. It's mostly just reading the same books I've read a million times before.

I've never tried to do this intentionally. Often, I will drift off to sleep while reading, but it's usually no fault of the book and I wish I could stay awake longer.

Yes, i went to boarding school and we have a compulsory siesta and I've been reading this book for the past three days so i decide to continue and in a few minutes i'm off to sleep. That was the only novel i read for two weeks, it was that boring and i skipped a lot of pages.

I don't deliberately choose a book to fall asleep to, but it always happens. There have been times where my hand has jerked because I've felt my Kindle slipping, and then I'll close it to go to sleep. Lol. It's rare that I don't fall asleep while reading late at night. It's the best way to fall asleep. Not because a book is boring, but because it's peaceful. Unless it's a horror or an action-packed scene. Then I have to turn on the light to read that scene before settling down again.

I've tried it without successful results. :lol: It would have to be a really boring book OR I would have to already be exhausted. If the book is even moderately interesting and my eyelids aren't already half-way down, I'll likely stay up all night reading. It's so counterproductive for me.

Too often do I wake up in the morning with my book on the floor and my page unmarked! Oftentimes books will keep me up late with their storyline, but when they reach a slower point I'll suddenly fall asleep!

For me, it is quite the opposite! If a book is good, I stay up much too late to read it and won't be able to sleep after because I will think about what could possibly happen next in the story.

:lol: No. I've tried but I can't fall asleep while reading. I can fall asleep while watching a TV series but never during a book.
