    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.

    Lots of history and biographies. Currently working on Comanche Empire.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    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.
