I can't sleep

I can't sleep properly. There are too many things buzzing around in my head, and whatever it is that wakes me up at 3am stays with me. I am instantly fully awake, ready (or so it seems) for the day to begin. I can't decide. Now even for a committed morning person like me, 3am is just too early. So I read for 30 minutes or so, to turn off the thoughts, and generally I fall asleep again. A girl gets through a lot of books this way. Here are two recent reads, which I've enjoyed.
I really like Philippa Gregory. It probably helps that I've never studied history. The first book of hers that I found 'The Other Boleyn Girl' is one of my favourites.
Jodi Picoult writes page turner novels rich in characters, and they're always a good read. Mine has a different cover than this one. What's that about? Different artwork to appeal to different parts of the world?

Esterita Austin left "The Other Boleyn Girl" at my house when she was here for a workshop and I just discovered it. I'm half way through and really enjoying it! Thanks for the recommendation on the other Gregory book. I'll have to try that one next.
