Well, most people do. MY husband usually read lying before he sleep every night. he can stand it in an hour reading while lying? Oh!! I can't because I usually fall asleep when I am on bed reading. I preferred to sit down while I read. Some people use reading as a sleeping therapy. what about you do you usually read in bed?

I usually don't read before bed I do it in the afternoon when I am able to have some extra time to just do whatever. I used to read before bed but now I'm too busy doing stuff and I just go straight to bed.

I tried doing this, but it gets hard after while. It makes me feel like my blood is rushing up my head. This makes it very hard for me to concentrate..

I don't read books while lying on bed, coz either my mind goes here and there or I fall asleep.

If I'm forcing myself to sleep than I'll read while lying down. But if it's something really important then I'll sit down and read. We're quite the same.I usually end up sleeping if I read while lying down. Hehe. So there, it depends on my needs. Hehe.

I usually read in bed lying down, unless I am reading someplace away from home, such as in the waiting room of a doctor's office. I think reading is a rather intimate experience and that "curling up with a good book" implies lying down rather than sitting in a chair -- though a recliner would probably be good for the purpose. Since I don't have a recliner, however, I read lying in bed. I find it to be comfortable and then, if I do get sleepy when reading late at night, I can just close the book and go to sleep.

REading while lying down is good for me when I am having a hard time going to sleep. I can sleep easily when I read lying. But people said, it is not good to your eyes. Well, I don;t know but most of my friends are lying down in bed, in the couch or anywhere when they read..

Nope, I seldom read while lying on the bed. It makes me feel uncomfortable. Sitting while reading is more like my way.
