What books do you read before you go to bed?

I have several books I habitually read before I go to bed and after I wake up in the morning. I've tried reading during sleep several times but, it's never worked for me. Anywho, I generally read books on Recovery and Quantum Mechanics before I go to bed.

What do you read before you go to sleep at night?

I just cycle through fiction. Just finished a Harry Potter book and a murder mystery. Currently reading The Girl with the Dragon tattoo. Ocassionally I will read my Bible or whatever study I am working on at bedtime, but I usually like to do that earlier in the day.

I should see if I could find a copy of my old OChem textbook. That's guaranteed to put you out.

Here's the current version. I"m sure its sleepmaking powers are the same.

whatever book I happen to be reading at the time, fiction, non-fiction, accounting journals. If was desperately trying to get to sleep: the Income Tax act.

Before sleep I write a couple of pages in a journal and get things organized.

Mornings it is, NY Times, C.S. Monitor, Archeology, and Nature.

Before I had kids, it was Bible or crossword puzzles or both.
Since then... please. Shower, get in bed, become unconscious ASAP. Read earlier in the day when there is still a chance at understanding.
