Amazon’s newest Kindle, the PaperWhite, includes a front light, a first in their line of e-readers. Great if you like reading in the dark, or happen upon a dimly lit scenario. That said, not everyone has made the leap to the digital age, and continues to read books the old fashioned way; paper and glue. So it begs the question of what to do in the event of no light or low light?
The LightWedge Reading Light seems to be the answer, and at $35 it’s about half the price of the cheapest Kindle, which mind you doesn’t include a light. Embedded in the handle are a set of LED lights powered by four AAA batteries that are said to be good for up to 40 hours of reading. When turned on their light is dispersed across a distortion-free optical-grade acrylic lens that should illuminate the entire page allowing you to read in little to not light, and all the while not disturb you bed partner.
The LightWedge Reading Light offers one-touch operation, two brightness levels (cool and really cool) and measures 6 3/4″ x 9 1/4″ in size.
