I am an avid reader and reading itself can induce some "SP like" auditory hallucinations. I know it's related because I will hear sounds that I was imagining while reading. Like a church bell toll or a gunshot. I'm not saying that it is loud and startling but It definitely "appears" to be external. I have also heard my name called out before in the dialect that I attributed to characters.

To me, reading is another way to enjoy a different state of consciousness and it certainly is a NP state.

This is different that what you are saying as you're referring to reading helping you dream after falling asleep but I just wanted to comment on how reading can help us get to the NP.

I actually find that reading is a great way to prime your consciousness to meditate!
The times in which I read before bed, I usually meditate for a bit before I actually lie down... and those sessions are usually so much easier. Almost natural.

I can't disagree at all. It's the fastest way to relax. The noises too get crazy at times then you exit easily from this state.
We may agree this is a prime conditioning factor as nobody has negated this find.
Reading occupies the mind and you become engrossed, this effectively disconnects you from the physical naturally.
Round of applause for Luciddreamer.

wow try meditating after reading it creates a more stable NPR its better than using your imaganation it moves by itself all you have to do is observe it and youl let go off your body and i just read a chapter and i could see the staircaise and the portraites off the ghost. try over books aswell.

It always works for me too, but I always thought it's because it makes my eyes tired without making my brain tired, making it ideal for meditation.
