Sleep

Anyone who knows really anything about me knows how much I need to get enough sleep. I'm an 8-hour-a-night girl and always have been. I have fantasies about being able to get by on 3 or 4 hours. I can count on one hand the number of times I've been able to stay up all night. My need for sleep is the stuff of family legend, and soon, no doubt, my children will be tucking me in to bed.... 

I found this lovely sleep-quote in Donna Tartt's The Little Friend:
She was happiest when she was asleep, with her head beneath her pillow; she longed for her bed all day, and flung herself into it as soon as it was decently dark.
(from the Bloomsbury paperback edition p.79)
