Hubby and I usually listen to radio to fall asleep since we both sometimes have things on our mind or occasional ringing in the ear that can be disturbing and interfere with sleep. At the time we'r listening to Danielle Steel. Next will be his choice of Louis L 'Amour . I've ordered from the library one of both our fav's Mark Twain . All the stress of the world today in politics is not good for the soul to listen to before bedtime like we were doing since talk radio is all about politics , news and just weird crapola. This is a great alternative and if you have a timer it cuts off when ever you choose so it doesn't wake you up in middle of night.
