|My Kindle's alter ego!|
It usually works.
Because the rest of the household is asleep I often read on my Kindle Paperwhite, because I don't need to have a light on to read. I guess my total exhaustion finally caught up!
Last night I started to read and the next thing I knew I woke with a fright when my Kindle landed splat! on my face, putting my tooth through my lip. With blood streaming I wished I hadn't tried to consider everyone else and read one of my paperbacks - they don't cause injury when you fall asleep reading them.
