Do you read in the bed and fall asleep?
27 Feb 09
Most nights after my children go to bed I will lie in bed have my laptop on the table next to my bed. And I'll start adding with friends or typing on mylot. I find that I can be on that for hours and hours and hours but as soon as I pick up a book I read do is read pages and I can't get my eyes stay open. I don't know what it is about books that make you sleeping.

I used to read in bed all the time, and fall asleep. For a couple of years, the only way I could go to sleep was by reading, which usually meant I had to re-read the last few pages several times to catch up. lol. Those were the days when it was just me. I didn't have to worry about the demands of a husband or children, and an all night reading session was allowed. Ah yes, the things I have given up in the name of love and motherhood. I can't wait until my children are able to read books to me. Then reading will become really fun with them, and i can share some of the bigger books from my childhood with them. Of course, might do this on the couch to prevent us all from going to sleep! lol

Yes, it happens to me everytime. I just can't read laying down or I will definitely fall asleep. I like to read in bed sometimes but when I do I have to be sitting straight up and I need the light to be shining brightly on my book. I even discovered recently that I will fall asleep if laying down while reading on a beach. I thought that I wouldn't since I was in public with the sun shining full in my face... but I did.
