Zzzzzzz ~ Breakfast makes me Sleepy!

My husband is a reluctant reader.  He likes to read occasionally but isn't the bookworm that I am.  In the winter when he isn't outside all day I can pick out a book I think he'd like and he will slowly make his way through it.  He always says that reading makes him sleepy.  Well, I agree with that.  If I read long enough I get sleepy too.  But he says it just takes him a couple pages and he is nodding off.  I always chalk it up to the fact that he doesn't have enough practice to make it further than a couple pages at a time.

Well.... I have discovered what he is talking about!  The current book I'm reading does the exact same thing to me.  I am reading Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo.  A blog I read regularly read it as a book club selection several weeks ago and I am just now catching up.

Every time I open the book and read a couple of pages, I get so sleepy I can't keep my eyes open.  The book is OK.  I'm staying interested to see what happens.  It isn't the page turner that I anticipated, but it isn't boring. 

I have never experienced this before.  I have gone back to work after the summer off.  It could be that I am more tired in the evenings than I thought, but I'm not falling asleep eating dinner or watching television.

I guess I can't laugh at my husband anymore for falling asleep every couple of pages.
