It is a bad idea to listen audio books as a sleeping aid. It actually destroys your normal sleep habits and structure. By Andre Strizhak

Active User, very eHealthy
Normally, REM dream sleep occurs after the deeper NREM stages. So if you experience a REM dream phase you will have benefitted from all the preceding deeper stages of NREM sleep, the most refreshing kind. Hopefully this will help you feel a little better about your situation.
