I always get sleepy when I read in bed, so I usually read a little before going to sleep to get that awesome sleepy sensation and relaxation to get a good night sleep. The time depends on how tired I got home from work really.

Yes I do at times but it happens when I read my coursework (don't get me wrong because I do love studying) but I have never slept while reading a novel. Until today I have no reason as to why it happens so.

Yeah but depending on what I'm reading that doesn't really stop me.

I have a common habit of yawning after opening the book, for once I doubt if god doesn't want me to study. :snooty:

I love how a book can lull you to sleep late at night. But on the other hand...a really good book can keep you awake for hours too!

Yes! And it seems so random some nights it puts me out in 10-15 minutes others I can read until 2am. It could even be the same book.

For me, it absolutely depends on the book I'm reading. Even if I'm tired, I can push through the sleepiness if the book is really good. I've absolutely accidentally pulled all-nighters before when I just couldn't put the book down. But if I'm just not feeling the book, I'll start to feel sleepy, like my body is telling me to go to something else otherwise it's naptime.
