I sometimes do, especially when I'm reading an interesting book!

I rarely read anymore but it can take me an hour or 2 to get to sleep.
So I definiitely think I should just so I can sleep better.

I used to read a 0,5 or 1 hour before having some sleep. Because reading makes me sleepy
But during summer vacation, I don't care much about sleeping early, so I don't read any books.

Unless it's my favorite book, I never read before going to bed.
I asked for it. This is what I wanted.

Same as megarevolution, I generally don't read before I go to bed unless it's one of my favorite books or, under certain circumstances, a book I have to read for school.

No...

Reading just does not work with my short attention span, and I tend to fall asleep when I'm sleepy and bored. Guess it all depends on the read...

Yes, I try to read every night. I usually can't sleep without reading first. I've been reading books every night for as long as I can remember.

A bad habit I have is staying up super-late to finish a book.

I only read when I hear a book is good. If I think a book is good, I won't put it down.

I don't on a regular basis, but I work at the public library so I ocassionally find a couple books that are worth reading and just read them if I am not tired enough to fall asleep.

I am more interested in articles and newer forms of written work than books. However, I like to read but I really enjoy writing (I have for a while and it is only recently that I have loved it this much!) Lately, I've been playing Jazz on my computer to help me sleep. I make a playlist of the same couple of songs that I have fallen in love with and it soothes me.

Back on reading: I am always so amazed at how dissect-able things like a work of art or a poem can be. I swear I look at what I have made and just bask in it. I see so many rhythms and nuances and other stuff that I did not remember being there when I was making it. It's unbelievable. The sub-conscious is a beautiful thing.

Only if it's a newspaper/magezine article, but if I have to read a book for school, then I'll read it then. Back when I was younger I would read all the time, but about 8th grade I sorta stopped.

I also read my comic books before bed, as a last "fun" thing to do. (Before watching Conan, of course.)

I wouldn't necessarily say normally, but I go on a 2-3 month long kick here and there where I will read, like a lot, including b4 bed. Sometimes I will do it just to help me go to sleep but I find it better to use a well read book for that or sometimes the book will keep me up!

Yes, i find it is darn near impossible to fall asleep if I haven't read at least a couple of chapters beforehand. Just a habit, now.

Some times I read for a while before I go to sleep; on occasion I read through a book or magazine, and on some occasions I read a fan fic that piques my interest, but basically I do like to read before I go to bed.
