Looking for Bedtime Stories

August 19, 2008

I’m looking for good bedtime books.  Stories, novels or poems that are gentle around the edges, enough to lead the way towards sleep.   Well-written kids and YA novels are great for that.  I’m also looking for good audiobooks of a similar soothing nature.  As my readers know, I’m a huge James Herriot fan.  Lately, that’s been on the strength of audiobooks, read by Christopher Timothy.  Stephen Fry’s readings of Harry Potter are lovely as well.  I’m looking for books on CD that will send me off to sleep after a few tracks.

Nonfiction also works for that, I suppose.   Memoir would work, or history with strong narrative.  (I’ve had a few of those lull me to sleep accidentally on the subway.  Oops!)

What audiobooks do people like?
