I grabbed the closest book to me and it just happened to be Dr. Suess' Sleep Book, which by the way, does nothing whatsoever to induce children to sleep (unless perhaps you bean them over the head with it). Since the Sleep Book does not - as it turns out - actually have 56 pages in it, I'll randomly open a page and share:
Have shut off their voices.
They've all gone to bed
In the beds of their choices.
They're sleeping in nooks. And they're sleeping in cracks.
Some on their tummies, and some on their backs.
They're peacefully sleeping in comfortable holes.
Some, even, on soft-tufted barber shop poles.
The number of sleepers is now past the millions!
The number of sleepers is now in the billions!
Sleep Book, by Dr. Suess
You're sleepy now, aren't you? Admit it, these books only work on adults.
Oh, and I'm supposed to tag some friends (which makes the supposition that I actually have some). So I'm thinking ...

- Michele - One 'L'
- The Tome Traveller's Weblog
- The Reader's Word
- The Luscious Literary Muse
I've been slacking on this blog posting thing. Probably because of Twitter. But also because I actually accomplished a full month of blog posting for National Blog Posting Month. Yup, that's right. I actually spewed out some nonsense on this blog every single day for the entire month of November. And you actually put up with said nonsense.
So as I see it, you deserve an award more than I do.
