I’m not sure if I have an actual ritual of reading at bedtime, but I do really like it. I might go days and weeks of watching TV before bed (shows like Sex and the City, usually), but for the most part, I get to bed earlier than when I want to sleep, like at 8:30 (which makes me look like a grandma), and try and read as much as I can. Sometimes I’ll get through chapters and other times I’ll get through pages.
I’ll also read any ol’ book before bed, whether it’s a physical book or an ebook. I kind of like ebooks because they keep my page number when I fall asleep and wake up three hours later with my ereader buried in the bed somewhere. Too many times I’ve woken up in the morning wondering where I left off in my physical book — and you know how you get through those last few pages, forcing yourself to read even though your eyes are closing constantly? Yeah, that makes it really hard to find where you left off. Certain parts seem familiar, but I spend more time confused than actually reading.
What is your bedtime reading ritual?
