Best of best available

My sincere thanks, Mr Jacklin. I have so enjoyed your stories especially at night when my mind seems to spin out, hashing out the day. So impressed with your talent, your deep, soothing voice and your writing. I’m always touched and comforted at times.

I want some more, please!

I have tried many many bedtime story apps, but always come back to Borders of Sleep. I have fallen asleep to these amazing, creative stories countless times. The use of language and the tone of Mr Jacklin’s voice are exactly the ticket to sweet dreams. But I want more of these wonderful bedtime stories.
