Booking Through Thursday - Night Owl
What’s the latest you’ve ever stayed up reading a book? Is staying up late reading a usual thing for you?
Yes, I've stayed up late reading a book. I have a comfy reading chair and light in our den which won't disturb the rest of the house if I read after everyone has gone to bed. I tend to stay up more in the summer because it gets really hard to do on school days when I'm up at 6:00. I enjoy being up in the quiet, dark of the house engrossed in my book. I do admit that I'm more likely to stay up when I'm near the end of a book that I really like.
When I was younger, I remember reading in bed with the flashlight under the covers after my parents made me turn off the lights. I'm surprised I wasn't sleep-deprived through elementary school!
I used to read late into the night much more than I do now. By 10:00 most nights, I'm already wiped out. I tend to do more early morning reading now because I'm up early to take my daughter to skating practices at ice rinks. That's especially true during the school year.
What about you? Do you read late at night?
