15 Day Book Blogging Challenge-Day 2

15 Day Book Blogging Challenge

Hosted and created by Good Books and Good Wine.

This was created to learn about the blogger, fellow bloggers,etc as a community.
Day 2
What's your bedtime reading ritual? 

Well, when I read before bed what I do depends on how early I head that direction.  If I plan to do some serious reading for a couple hours, I grab a drink (water or tea usually) and maybe a light snack (such as carrot sticks).  Then I prop a bunch of pillows around me to get a comfy position half sitting/half laying down.  at this point I am often in sleep clothes.

As it gets later, of if I am only planning a short read time, I finding getting ready for bed (brush/wash,etc), grab my cat and curl up with her on my arm, fully laying down now and read for awhile.

If I have to get up early I will read a book I enjoy but am not to into yet so I am not stuck up all night reading hopefully.  Once I have laid down, reading can last 5 min-1 hr.

Guilty admission-some nights I don't read before bed.  Sshhh!! Don't tell! 


  1. Yeah I have to be very careful about reading before often leads to me being up until 4 in the morning. I've never understood how reading is supposed to put people to sleep!

    1. Pretty much. Usually I have to force but a book down after awhile. It doesn't put me to sleep. Unless I am reading some textbook or manual but those typically aren't my thing to read.
