Hello, and welcome to my little corner of quirkiness. The purpose of this blog is to make it easier to connect with my readers. It's really that simple. The name of the blog, "Quirky Dreams," is relevant only in that my dreams are often quirky, unusual ones, and they are also where I get many of my writing ideas from. I dream in full-length, color, high-def story lines, and if they are remembered, I write them down. Parts or all of these dreams may enter a story. A story might be based around a single dream or an idea from a dream. Regardless of which it is, this is my writing blog, so kick back in your chair, bed, recliner, or airport terminal, and enjoy the blog.

Go the F**k to Sleep

So, I'll admit, those words caught my attention.

Go the F**k to Sleep is a book that at first glance looks like a children's book. The cover displays a child sleeping with adorable looking tigers.

In reality, it's described as a bedtime story for adults, specifically focusing on parents with children who just can't sleep.

What's even cooler is that this book made it to the #1 spot on the Amazon best seller list.

I'll admit, I think the idea of creating a bedtime story for adults is genius. I'm even tempted to buy the book for myself. It looks fun! Even more interesting is this article though, which details how the book became such a success.

Just goes to show that nothing beats a shocking title and a sense of humor!

  1. Not to mention the title is very relational. Something every parent (not me of course *halo*) has uttered at least once in their tenure as child raiser.
