Lightwedge Reading Light Doubles as Gigantic Bookmark


The LightWedge reading light is a very handy device that lights a whole page of a book – and nothing else, allowing you to read without disturbing the people around you. Unless you start reading aloud. The LightWedge is equipped with “distortion-free, optical grade acrylic lens” and LED lights that can run up to 40 hours on 4 AAA batteries.


And when you’re done reading for the day, just leave it between the pages as a bookmark. Or maybe not; it may be a bit thick and could damage your book if you leave it wedged in for a while. LightWedge comes in two sizes: regular book-size (9.5″ x 6.75″ x .5″) that sells for $22 USD, and paperback size (7.4″ x 5.5″ x .5″), both available at ThinkGeek.

Now if only they’d make one of these for the Kindle.

    They make one for the Sony Reader PRS 505 version, just another reason to get a Sony Reader over a Kindle!

    I have a lightwedge and find it completely useless. The only illumination I get is on the vertical edge where the pages join, and it was not cheap. I now have a $35 bookmark that is too thick to leave in the book.
