My kids, for whom English hovers between a first and a second language, sometimes confuse the verbs "beat" (as in "beat the opponent") with "win" (as in "win the game"). For example they might say "I won him" when they meant "I beat him."
So forgive me now for telling you that this blog post cannot tell you how to beat insomnia. Instead, it's here to tell you how to win a signed copy of The Insomniac's Weather Report. You can do that by entering my Goodreads giveaway here. The deadline is June 30th.
