Agh! apologies. Full title of Miranda Seymour's book (bad italics, my bad): In My Father's House!

I love the assumption in your opening question - that we all read in bed. I know I do and doubt that I could fall asleep no matter how exhausted, without reading a few paragraphs of something. I too read prose in bed but mostly magazines. I find that as I get older there is more time between books. I'm not happy about this and imagine that it will change at some point.

And Another Addendum: should you wish to find Miranda Seymour's book in the U.S., look for "Thrumpton Hall: A Memoir of Life in My Father's House."

RE Above: Absolutely. -- SDH

Lately, The Groucho Letters... His wit is something to aspire to...
