If a book is too stimulating, then I risk staying up until the wee hours and then ambling into the office the next morning. What will my coworkers think? I mean, it’s not very “rock star” to say I’ve surrendered to a book instead of sleep. Oh, what a wild night! I’m 200 pages deep in the “Sorcerer’s Stone.”
