Booking Through Thursday - Night Owl

btt button

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?

I've noticed, now that I'm older and must wear glasses to read, that it isn't as much fun to stay up reading in bed because I can never get the glasses to cooperate. Ha!

I do a lot of late-night reading. Like you said, when it's quiet and the rest of the house is dark, it's a great time read. I just feel like I can concentrate better knowing the phone won't ring, nobody's going to text me, nobody will want me to do something for them, etc. Late at night is probably when I get the most reading done.

I don't do any late night reading anymore. I just end up falling sleep and not remembering what I read.

I do read very early in the morning though.
