Hi Tracey, I'm sorry you have had a bad night. Mine wasn't brilliant although I have improved recently after a nasty chest infection. i keep an e-reader in bed with me and borrow library books on it. You are not allowed to borrow library books on every type of e-reader. PM me if you want details. Take care of yourself and keep warm.

Hi Sheila,

What type of e-reader would I need please? I have a library van that stops in the centre of our small village, outside my house. It would be so handy to use an e-reader.

I have a nasty chest infection and it's disturbed my sleep schedule. I seem to be up all hours and am driving hubby mad!

MrsMac, I use a Kobo. I live in England near Liverpool and belong to our local library and also have been allowed to join Liverpool library which extends the choice. You can not use a kindle to borrow library books. It takes a bit of mastering to start with but help is sometimes available at a library

The books are automatically 'taken back' at the end of the loan period.

I am going on holiday soon so will borrow the maximum of books from both libraries. You can also buy books and are offered some free from bookbub.

Excellent, I live in Lincolnshire so will ask the library bus staff if the Kobo is OK for them too. It sounds ideal!

Thanks for sharing this info :)

Sounds like the club is getting bigger by the night! I too take books to bed but use the audio books option from my library to at least help me relax if not sleep.

I take books to bed too. In fact, I have a pile of my favourite embroidery books on my bedside table along with my current novel.

I love the idea of drifting off to sleep listening to an audio book!

Pity. I find daytime naps are better for me than nighttime ones! Have a lovely day and I hope you manage a good afternoon nap. x

It's interesting that e readers have been mentioned because I have several books on my IPad that I read when I can't sleep because of my asthma.
