Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens Sleep soundly with tonight's bedtime story. Charles Dicken’s last novel. A bedtime mystery full of interesting characters already, but I’m fairly sure that the way I tell you this story won’t keep you awake and you will go to sleep with me reading to you fairly quickly. When I saw this on Project Gutenberg I actually got quite excited as I’m a Lost fan, real ones will know. 😊 and so far I'm enjoying the bedtime story. Story (07:48) Need a Podcast Editor?

Sleepy Time Tales - Bedtime Stories for Sleep and Relaxation

Old Glass and How to Collect it by J. Sydney Lewis The history of glass may be interesting to some, but the dry tale of the rise of the English glass industry will help you get to sleep, unless you’re very interested in the type and history of the stems on historical glassware. Will learning how to spot a fake historical glass artifact keep you awake? I’m guessing probably not. So, sit back, settle down, close your eyes, and fall asleep to this boring history.

Sleepy Time Tales - Bedtime Stories for Sleep and Relaxation

Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions — Volume 1 by Charles Mackay Sleep will be very tempting as we follow the life and times of a dilettante man about town through ruin, fortune and landing on his feet. We also learn about the last Kings of France, the mechanisms of Tax farming that led to the French Revolution, and charming aristocrats as they move through the end of an era.
