    If you can't sleep at night, obviously you wake up tired rather than fresh. Reading feeds your mental chatter; if you read too much the mind spins faster. So you probably need to observe your mental chatter and keep it under control by relaxing.

    I have some hubs on mental chatter; you might find some useful tips in there.

    You need a bit of work out in order to get a sound sleep. I recommend you to do meditation and pranayam. If you read a lot it makes you mentally tired which might hamper your sleep. Go for a brisk walk or work out. It will surely help you. Goodluck.

    If your mind is too active particularly before your bedtime it can be hard to a switch off. You should do something relaxing/calming in the hour before you go to bed (this allows the mind time to wind down somewhat) - so no reading or computer etc in that time. You should also refrain from doing this type of reading in your bedroom (makes it harder to switch off as you associate your bedroom with such activity as oppossed to associating it with relaxing and sleep).

    Another thought - It may also be worth having your eyes checked or your current prescription if you already have glasses - you may be straining your eyes - even slightly can add up).

    Slowing down the mind is key.  Deep breathing exercises: inhale,  counting to 4 hold breath for a second, exhale, repeat.
    Neck rolls, from side to side, back and forth, around and around, until you feel your mind slowing down.
    A warm bath is very relaxing.  From A to Z start thinking of all you are thankful for that day, next thing you know it, sleep.
    and,  I agree, to no reading in bed.
    Great question!

    I have a couple of hubs that might help. I know you mentioned the reading, but other things could also be causing your insomnia.
