The British are coming! The British are coming! The midnight ride of Paul Revere....or maybe....not! This latest study shows that the UK would rather opt for a good book than a tumble in the hay.

While the writer in me thinks this news is a refreshing affirmation of our appetites for reading, the man in me finds it more than a little depressing.

According to a new survey, a third of Brits like to have a good read before they go to sleep - while less than one per cent say that they look forward to sex at the end of the day. 

Now, before you ask yourself if this might be the first compelling argument against literacy, as I just did, read on a bit.

A further 14 per cent like to spend some quality time with their laptops at bedtime, preferring to chat on social networking sites than cuddle up with their partner.

The survey, by Bensons for Beds, shows that although half of people enjoy a kiss or cuddle before they drop off, a quarter then sleep in the 'cliffhanger position' on the edge of the bed rather than snuggling up together.

Does that answer your question? It just raises more for me. (Not that I want answers.)

What exactly is "quality time" with a laptop?

If Americans read less than our British allies, does that mean we have more sex?

If I "drop off" tonight will I be sleeping or dying?

Regardless, this survey deserves some resurveying. I suspect and hope many of these answers came from people that answered landlines and I demand a do-over, by text messaging!

In the meantime, I'll be cuddling my plasma TV.

Honestly, the story and survey are quite interesting.
