How has your year been so far? One twelfth down and eleven twelfths to go. This year we have done some cleaning and we are about to count our stuff (inventory is the technical term). We will be closed on Sunday, February 10th, to do that. 
Please do not be too hard on yourself about new year's resolutions. You may not have been reasonable when you set your words in stone. I have an example: My 2019 resolutions include being able to fly without the aid of a plane, learning how to turn into whatever animal I want on demand, and gaining a complete understanding of economics. I am nowhere near accomplishing even a month's worth of these three goals. I will work towards the ideal of each. Onward.

Caversham Booksellers will be closed on Sunday, February 10th, for our annual inventory count. 
Parking on Harbord Street can, on occasion, be scarce. We have a specific space behind the store that may be available to you if you give us a call before you arrive. 416-944-0962.

How to Sleep Well: The science of sleeping smarter, living better, and being productive
Neil Stanley

I will almost be asleep when suddenly I have to surf the internet to see how much tractors cost. My mind races everywhere. While finalizing my plans for a wildlife refuge in our window planter, and, moments before I have to wake up to head into work, I finally fall asleep. 

I am not a great sleeper so uploading this book's secrets, ideally without reading it, is something that I thought might prove useful.

Exquisite charm like mine cannot be so without a splash of humility, so I gave reading this book a go and found my immediate concerns addressed on pages 57, and 66 through 68. As an arrogant novice on the topic, however, continued reading, beyond my shallow asks, was a wise move.

The chapter on sleeping in a hotel is dynamite. Eat meals and do work away from your hotel room. Socialize elsewhere and make your room a "sanctuary reserved for sleep". Carefully adjust the temperature, get a pink noise app, write whatever you are worried about down and leave it on the page. I had never thought of any of this before - All very good advice. 

The effect of sleeping with one's child, the role of diet, various sleep aids of both the pharmaceutical and herbal variety, restless leg syndrome, and, everything else you can think of, is covered in this very approachable gem. Not only was there valuable insight into my own situation, this book is a well written and interesting trove that I enjoyed, as an enquiring mind, far beyond my original reasons for picking up the book. I could do more to sleep well. Before I read this book I was convinced I was nothing more than an innocent, blameless, victim, of a cruel world. Sweet dreams my little gremlins.
