Cure your insomnia by having a stranger read you a bedtime story

If you're preparing yourself for another sleepless night, help could be at hand (if you live in New York City).

Since May 2011, local artist Madhu Kaza has been reading bedtime stories to insomniacs in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Madhu visits complete strangers and reads them a story as part of her artist-in-residence program at the Proteus Gowanus gallery in Brooklyn.

Apparently, this appears to be a surprisingly effective insomnia cure:

People often fall asleep pretty quickly. On average, I haven't been anywhere for more than an hour.

If you want to give this a try, be aware that Madhu needs to be able to let herself out once you've fallen asleep (it's counter-productive if she needs to wake you up in order to leave). As for the reading selection? It sounds quite varied - from Roald Dahl to John Fowles, it sounds like she's got you covered.

Get in quick - we doubt this offer will last indefinitely!

    This is sweet–sort of like being a kid, and being read to just before bedtime.

    We read all the Harry Potter books aloud, so that we didn’t have to fight over who got to read it first and how long the first person was taking to read it. Our son would sit between us, and the adults would alternate nights for doing the reading. If I weren’t reading, I had needlework that was pretty calming to do. Needlework can be pretty boring to me if I don’t have something else where I don’t have to use my eyes (conversation, listening), to keep me engaged in both activities.

    Of course, these days, there’s that Bejeweled2 game that shuts down my brain…
