If you do, here's a nifty solution.

Not unless the writer is boring to read.

I prefer this to sleep to and find it far more therapeutic for my insomnia...I highly suggest people try it coffee

I was not foiled. And books are my key to sleep. They help my brains to stop the everspinning mass of thoughts and find the calmness they need to be able to sleep.

If life seems jolly rotten
there's something you've forgotten
and that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing

I'm not surprised you weren't fooled.

For the most part, I don't like April 1st day pranks or jokes, but this one really tickled my fancy.

I actually find podcasts, rather than reading, help me fall asleep. I was brought up on stories read at bed time, and later, listening to radio before going to sleep. Podcasts are like radio to me. Falling asleep while hearing voices talking, discussing books, telling stories, is absolutely wonderful.
