Don't you just hate when you are almost at the end of the book and your eyes keep closing .I often read late at night and will be so into the book that I hate to put it down and I get sleepy but I want to read just a few more pages and it really bugs me when I'm almost at the end and I can't keeps my eyes open.I will read it and the next day have to read the end again because I was so sleepy that i couldn't remember what I read. Anybody else have this problem? Raydene

I love to read when i`am in bed late at night, it helps to relax and to fall asleep, however sometimes when your are close to the end, and your eyes are getting heavier, it´s an awful sensation dont being able to stay awake.

I do hate it. However, something I hate even more is falling asleep and having my book close...grrr..drives me crazy trying to find the spot I was at again ! There are just not enough hours in the day for reading, writing, and everything else I want to do...So many books, so little time.

That happens to me sometimes and I'll wonder where it was or how much I really read. But then, sometimes the problem I have is that I'll be reading a book for school, and drop it down the wrong side of the bed! My bed is really really heavy, and there is no way to get it back without moving the bed.

It happens to me all the time. But, I have a health problem that sometimes makes it difficult to read for a long time. My brain wants to shut itself down sometimes.

I fall asleep every time I start to read the book at night. And its very hard to read, because you wake up for a second again and try to read but then fall asleep again etc etc etc..

I actually kind of like it. Some nights I have trouble sleeping,a nd it's nice to not have to think about falling asleep, but rather just doing it.

What I hate most is getting all involved in a TV show & falling asleep on the last 10-15 minutes of it so I never know the outcome. Either that, or I wake up as they're rolling the credits. Bummer! Blessings, JoannH

I have the exact same problem. I'll be so sleepy that I'll only remember parts of what I've read. It makes it so hard to figure out where to reread from. I'll usually find a spot, then realize I need to still go back a few pages because of everything that I'd missed.

Oh I hate to fall asleep reading or to be so sleepy that I have to go to sleep before I can finish the book! And I have fallen asleep with a book in my hands and had creases in my fingers from the book!

Yes, I agree, but I don't have much problem about it. What I hate the most is that if I'm reading a novel, I can keep my eyes open. On the other hand, if I am studying, I just can't keep my eyes open. I always feel sleepy. I wish some school books are made like novels so that it will be very interesting.

Funny how that happens. Try to take subjects you are interested in whenever you can.

That's the reason why I rarely read at night anymore....I can't read more than 3-4 pages. I love to read early in the morning, when I wake up on weekends!

Well yes this is a very common occurence that is there with everybody almost. I would suggest you that rather thinking of it as a problem, take it a bit positively that you atleast get a good sound sleep doing that, there are people who struggle to sleep at nights due to their own health shortcomings and crave for this most of the night. And, moreover when you do get the occurence of this overpowering sleep, just do that as it is more benefitial to your overhealth too, it is a well known fact that you do always sleep when you feel like, not just for the sake of it, so i feel nothing wrong in it.

I've been doing that lately. I've been reading the Harry Potter books for the first time through and I feel like not stopping, but then my eyes get tired and I drop off to sleep. When I wake up, my hands are still on the book. Its a very weird experience R! Love always, Wiiguy

I usually drop the book and loose my page. Then the next AM I have a hard time finding where I was. I have not been reading as much lately. Thanks for the response.

Do what I do next time that happens R. Leave the book open and put it nearby you before going to sleep. That's what I do and it works. That or just leave a bookmark!

Hello raydene...I actually entertained the thought of reading then falling asleep. At times, when my body is tired from the day's work, but my brain will still be functioning. Reading is one thing that really helps me to sleep. :)

Yes, this has happened to me many times. The book is so good, and I just cannot quit reading, even though I am tired. But, the body always wins out.

I often fall asleep reading. I won't even be tired, I'll just start reading and I'll be full of energy. Then, I'll keep reading and after awhile I start getting a headache. If I'm in any kind of position where I could fall asleep, I might end up falling asleep. Otherwise, I'll just keep reading and end up with a headache. I've never really read something that I just couldn't put down, but usually this will happen when I'm forced to read something for school.

LOL.. It happens to me all the time. My other half likes to bug me because if I go upstairs to lay down and read while he's finishing up on the computer, 9 times out of 10 by the time he gets up there, I'm fast asleep still holding the book. He'll take the book out of my hands (and usually lose my page while he's doing that) and put it on the nighttable for me.

Oh yes I hate that too but I also read just to fall asleep anyway. I have troubles to fall asleep sometimes and reeding helps a lot to fall asleep. I read romantics books than becaurse they don't interest me that much. Exiting books I keep for during the day or the weekends so I can read them without faling a sleep or being woried that I have to wake up early the next morning.
