The Problem There are 2 people sharing a room. One person likes to read till late at night. The problem is that the other person cannot sleep with the lights on. And he cant tell hisroommate to switch off the lights because he wants to read. Everyday, he has to wait till his room mate switches off the lights and as result, he cannot get proper sleep, since he hardly gets 3-4 hours (his work begins at 5 am in the morning). Now, he wants to know how can he tackle this problem of not being able to sleep, without affecting the reading habit of his room mate!!
