LightWedge makes a number of nifty products, and we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to review a couple of them over the past few weeks. You may remember the review about the LightWedge Paperback Book Light we did a while ago.
Like that product, this one also lives up to the claims of the manufacturer. It’s a pretty simple device, honestly. Simply put, the “spike” clips into the spine of your book, and a flexible neck with a small LED attached at the end lights up the pages so you can read in the dark. While it is not as inconspicuous as the Book Light, it provides more direct light, making it slightly easier to see.
Why you need one: It makes it easy to read in the dark, and while bright, offers pointed light, causing minimal distraction to those around you. Not expensive, so hard to go wrong.
Why you could pass: Sometimes the blue hue of the LEDs can be hard on your eyes.

The Bottom Line: Makes a good stocking stuffer, or small gift for a book reader, but don’t expect to win an award at your annual white elephant gift exchange.
