I often do. On the weekends too if I'm lucky icon_smile

It's so much better falling asleep after reading, than being hit from all sides electronically watching the TV or staring at the laptop.

Yeah, all the time. It's pretty much the norm when I travel for work and am sleeping alone.

I actually never do, I need to be wrapped up in a blanket or I cant sleep. Yes, even in the middle of summer... I need my blanket.
It takes me a minute or so to get into said sleeping position, which occupies my hands, so I cant be reading.

I fall asleep reading most nights. the only bad thing about it is when I lose my page and have to go looking for it.

I do this fairly often but I try to read daily. Once at the cottage I awoke to discover that I had poured my drink all over my book and my lap.

I don't read much, but when i do it is normally a book that i could stay up all night reading and normally try to do... however reading makes me tired. So like Lois, i normally wake the next morning with it under me, somewhere on the bed, or floor.

The two books I know I have fallen asleep reading is: Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe, way, way, way before even both of these films were made. I love reading all of Nicholas Sparks books.

ooh yes, and the better the book gets faster I fall into sleep.. The only problem I have with in my 'book sleep' is that I am too concerned that I won't demage the book, so the sleep is not relaxing..

I haven't fallen asleep while reading before. The book usually holds my attention and I can't put it down.

TV makes me go to sleep in about five minutes flat, though!

I don't watch TV, but listening to the radio or a podcast interview does that to me in twenty minutes.

Negative. If the book isn't interesting enough to keep me awake, I put it down when I get sleepy.

I do two things, when on a mattress. Neither one included reading, smoking, or channel surfing.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

I actually use reading as an aid for insomnia. After a half hour, I'm drowsy enough to sleep.

I do the same every night... but end up reading sometimes for hours.

When I read during the day, I always fall asleep. But at night....I can read all night. I'm an insomniac so I usually rely on pharmaceuticals to get to sleep. Nowadays, I watch documentaries on the English civil war to go to sleep to. But I usually wake up after about 4 hours and read then.

I consider falling asleep while reading a bad thing. A really good book should hold my attention... but I confess, my days are very long and I'm beat by the time I get to bed. Reading zonks me out. I read in the morning, on the bus, on my way to my day job... Its a 45 min ride, so I get some good reading in. =o)

I'm the same way, have to have a blanket. Also I'm the one who reads until my eyes hurt and I have to put the book down..

I read every night before going to sleep, but seldom fall asleep while reading.

This happens to me often and I hate it because then I have to find where I left off at.

This is why you should stick to reading Lush stories on your computer...

The only problem is you might fall asleep, roll over onto your netbook, hit the wrong keys, and delete everything on your hard drive...

Other than that, you're pretty safe though...

I've fallen asleep at times while reading. Sometimes while I'm taking down notes to a story idea I have, I would wake up with the book/notebook and pen on the floor.
