15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 2: Bedtime Reading Ritual

I must read at least few pages before going to bed at night, because it’s just relaxing. All complicated matters and problems would flow away from my mind with every words of the book—really, I’m not exaggerating! :) So, no matter how tired or sleepy I am, reading at least one or two pages before sleeping is a must. I usually accompany it with a couple of bites of chocolate biscuits. After that, I could certainly sleep well.

What about you? Do you have certain bedtime reading ritual?

  1. Hey Fanda,

    I agree.. Reading before sleeping is a must! However, I some times find myself unable to leave the book, and instread of few pages I may keep reading until 03:00 a.m. Some other times, when I am tired I say, OK, I'll only read 2-3 pages, hahaha, but then I cannot control my binge reading, and go on with the reading.. After finishing, I usually put the book next to my bed (on a bedside tower) and drink water.. and dream of what I already read.

    1. Ohh...I wish I could dream of my readings!
      I am usually discipline enough about my bedtime, because I tend to wake up at the same hour every morning, so sleeping late would be a disaster the next morning. But on Saturdays, I can extend my reading time till my brain could no longer take what I'm reading. However, I've never fall asleep while reading!

    2. I do dream sometimes of my readings. AS for reading for a late hour, I also wake up early, at 06:00 a.m. every morning, as I should be at work by 07:30; However, sometimes I do some sacrifices, especially when the book is irresistable.. Like you, I've never fell asleep while reading!

  2. I used to read before going to bed, once upon a time. And never merely a page or two!....now I hardly ever read before going to bed as I've mentioned on my blog. I tend to, however, read a great deal in the bathroom!! Weird place, I know. But it's the only time I get a break from the kids. :D

    1. Ha! I think reading is an activity that's possible in all times, providing we have a quiet and solitary moment. :)
