Boring Books for Bedtime

By Handymakes

Boring Books for Bedtime is a weekly podcast created for people who have trouble relaxing, shutting off that chattering brain, and getting to sleep. Each episode is a reading of something that's rather boring, read in a rather boring way, so you can chill and get some rest for once. Think relaxation, meditation, and a touch of ASMR for those that dig that sort of thing. Enjoy!
