15 Day Blogger Challenge - Day 2

What's Your Bedtime Reading Ritual?

I do often read before I go to bed. There isn't usually much on TV worth watching or my husband may want to watch something I don't care about. There are times when I do want to watch something, but my husband is tired and wants to sleep. Since my hearing isn't what it used to be I have to have the volume up loud enough that it disturbs him. When I'm not ready to go to sleep, it's a book to the rescue.

Reading a book is quiet so he isn't disturbed. It is relaxing so it makes me want to fall asleep. Unless, of course, it's one of those page-turners that I keep saying to myself, "Ill put it away at the end of this chapter." But then I get to the end of the chapter and there's no way I'm putting the book down yet. You know exactly what I mean. You know you've been there, too.

The days following those late nights of reading are a little long, but when it comes time to go to bed that night, the book-reading ritual starts all over again.

How about you? Do you read before you go to bed at night? Do you have a ritual?

  1. Night time is my favorite reading time. The kids are in bed, my husband is usually in bed, the dogs are in bed. The TV is off and the house is quiet. That is when I can really sink into a book either old or new and let myself float away on the words of the story.
