Sleep is good. Books are better

Below is a very short recap of a conversation I just had with a friend Me: “I’m not sure what to do… I just have so much trouble falling asleep!”  Her: “Why don’t you try reading a book? That puts me to sleep in like 5 minutes.”  Me: … 😐 “… You don’t know me at all, do…
