How do you read a book when the book itself tries to put you to sleep? ?How do you read a book when the book itself tries to put you to sleep? ? Shyla #questionnaire
You let it carry you off and hopefully, you’ll find yourself there in your dreams?
I use them as guides for sleepy time
Maybe you need to take it easy ?
Change books. Its clearly not holding your attention ?
That’s not always true 🙂 Sometimes you really want to read and it’s a really good book! But your body says you’re in real need of sleep. Like mine is doing right now… My body speaks true, but I still try to fight it 🙂
This is a book I really wanna read but every time I pick it up it true to put me to sleep
Just go with it. If it’s that particular book that makes you sleep, use it as sleeping pill. ?
Come back to it another time. I’m a mood reader so if a book is putting me to sleep it’s because it’s not for me at that time. So I read something else and try it again another time.
This might sound odd but I put music on something that wont put me to sleep and I listen to that as I read
Never thought about doing that
If a book makes me want to sleep, that’s a sign of a boring book haha. At least it is for me. A good book keeps me awake!
I suffer from insomnia. Maybe you should tell me the name of the book. Worth a try lol
Transformers Exodus by Alex Irvine
Youuu stop reading it and move on?
Walk away from it.. Then come back to it at a later stage
Literary Fiction puts me to sleep.
See I have that problem with some book also .. but then when. I go to another book I feel guilty bc I didn’t finish that book .. lol
Life is to short to read books that you are not interested in!
I sit up in my computer chair & drink coffee.
Im a mom and half the time i read a book and even if i enjoy it i fall asleep
I sleep. I have a small collection of books which help me sleep- Ethics of Spinoza, Meditations of Aurelius and the absolutely superb soporific- Thomas Aquinas. ( I mean no disrespect, they are all great scholars).
I made it my going to bed book
Stop reading! Too many good books out there to waste time on boring ones
I don’t. too many books on the TBR pile to waste time on books that try to kill me ?
Just read til I go to sleep or can’t hold the book open. Takes longer to read a book reading that way but eventually you get the book read
Coffee. Change of chair. Read by quota. 30, 50, whatever per day depending on book density.
Honestly if it’s making you fall asleep out of boredom I’d stop reading it ? unless you read to fall asleep then it’s doing the job x
I keep it on my night stand and use it to put me to sleep. ?
Books usually hold my attention enough to keep me awake but audiobooks zonk me out right away.
Stop reading it
Set it on fire
Try it at a different point in your life. Maybe the heat or the time you read or subject matter. Either way, go on to something that doesn’t knock you out
This book is a cure for insomnia puts me to sleep every time I try to read it,it’s called the house of seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne?I don’t read it I give up LOL
Simple. I inject coffee mixed with an energy drink into my veins through a syringe and I read on. You’re not gonna put me to sleep, book!
