Best reading night light

Great reading night lights

A good reading night light will provide you with optimum light for reading or any task that requires light to work with minute details. If you are an avid reader or a person with endless work that requires a great deal of reading, then you know the struggle of finding the right kind of lights. With so many products in the market, one has to go through a few that may not serve the purpose. While buying a night light one is of two minds, whether to go for a white light or a warm yellow? Can you have both?

Buying guide

The following guide will take you through all of the aspects that you ought to consider if you’re in the market for the right reading light. We’ve made sure to look at the most important factors that should be borne in mind.

Light color temperature

One thing’s for sure; not all readers are the same. By the same token, not all reading lights are identical. While some individuals enjoy warmer light, others prefer to have their pages or e-book reader display as white as possible. For night reading, it would be a good idea to go for warmer tones as your eyes might grow tired from the white one you probably come in contact during the day, when you’re looking at your phone or your computer.

Choosing the right type

In terms of design, not all reading lights speak to the same individuals. For example, some folks like to read while sitting down in front of their desks. What these people are looking for are reading lamps. Various other readers, on the other hand, might be looking for a clip-on light that can be attached either to the cover of the book or the case of their electronic reading device. So, which one will it be for you?


While some lamps are limited in terms of customization, with others, you can benefit from a lot of freedom. If the lamp or clip-on light comes with an adjustable gooseneck, you can focus the light on a particular part or page of your book.


It goes without saying that most clip-on models come with batteries, but these differ largely from one unit to the next. For example, some might be equipped with rechargeable batteries while those of others are disposable.

Of course, if what you’re in the market for is a desk lamp, it needs to be plugged into an outlet to do its job. While it might not be necessary, it wouldn’t hurt if you checked the voltage of the device so as to ensure that it is capable with 110V instead of 220V; the latter is used in European countries.

Are looks important?

Just how beautiful do you want your new reading light to be? Are you going to display it in some place where guests might be able to see it? If not, you can opt for a standard alternative that doesn’t wow you with its looks. Believe it or not, many ordinary-looking devices are quite cheaper compared to those boasting an eye-catching design.

To give you a hand at selecting the right product, we’ve compiled a list of the three products that seem to be worth every cent. Check them out below.

9 Perfect Gifts for Austen Fans

Great gifts for fans of Jane Austen's writing

For those of you who can't have enough of Pride and Prejudice and any other novels written by Jane Austen, we have compiled a short list of several gifts you'd like to receive. Wink Wink - maybe suggest them to your friends and family so they know what they can get for you when your birthday or Christmas comes around?

If that's what you are doing, which is to say that you're on the hunt of the perfect gift for an Austen fan, perhaps you should consider having a look at the next items. I know I have enjoyed them and would love to get my hands on them! There's a bit of Elizabeth and a bit of Darcy in all of us, after all.

Marrying Mr. Darcy Board Game

If you really love Pride and Prejudice, you're going to love this game! Players have to go through two stages to finish the game. The first, as you might have guessed, is the courship stage, and the second is the proposal stage. In short, it's a simple card game that won't raise any difficulties to anyone, nor will it bore the life out of those who dislike playing board games, in general.

The Complete Novels of Jane Austen

There are two ways of going about if you want to give a nice present to someone who loves Austen's writing. In many cases, even hardcore Austen fans haven't had the opportunity to read absolutely all of her novels. So giving them a collection such as this one is a good idea. Plus, if the person you intend to surprise owns an e-book reader, you might want to know that the collection is available for free in the Kindle Store. Most Austen's novels aren't protected by any copyright anymore, having been published so long ago.

Socksmith Women's Jane Austen Socks

I think I've mentioned another pair of literary socks in one of my older posts, from last year or so. The design of those made me burst out laughing as they actually featured about a dozen miniature Edgar Allan Poe head figures. These socks are a bit more classic, as is pretty much anything related to Austen, right? They're made from cotton, nylon, and spandex, which means that they're going to last for a decent amount of time. Besides, they're available in two colors -- steel blue and lavender -- so you can choose the one you like most. The best thing about socks is that you can get enough of them!

The Unemployed Philosophers Guild Austen Coffee Mug

This microwave and dishwasher-safe mug is, without a doubt, a great gift to give to someone who likes Austen quotes and wants to have them close all of the time. The 14 oz capacity is great for someone who drinks tea or coffee. We suggest offering this type of present to a person who spends a lot of time in front of the computer or at the office. Perhaps these Austen quotes might be able to improve their mood once in a while.

Out of Print Pride and Prejudice Pouch

The coolest thing about this pouch is that it actually looks like a small handbag. It's sizeable enough to be used for storing and carrying various essentials such as a smartphone, a lipstick, house and car keys, and anything else that one might need when one's out and about. It features a typical zipper enclosure, so there's no point wasting time trying to open and close it up. Besides, it is made in the United States.

Pride and Prejudice Book Scarf

There's really not that much to say about this product, and that's because it's a scarf on which some of the most memorable Austen quotes from her best-known novel have been printed. Thanks to its color and design, it goes well with any attire. Every scarf is gift wrapped and comes in a zipper pouch that can be reused. Most of those who have purchased it seem to be pleased with its quality and the fact that it's made from a soft jersey fabric. By the way, this one's crafted in the U.S., too, in Los Angeles, to be more specific.

Classic Coloring Jane Austen

It's no wonder coloring books have become so popular in recent years. After all, the activity has a beneficial effect on anyone's stress levels. Through the pages of this book, you'll get to experience a bit of the age that Austen used to live in. There are fifty-five removable coloring plates within the covers of the book, and they can be used with watercolors, markers, as well as colored pencils. They'll hold quite well, based on what some of those who have bought this item have to say about it.

Tea with Jane Austen: Recipes inspired by her novels and letters

You know how the British love their tea? Well, back in Austen's day, they used to love it even more. While these days it actually means dipping a teabag into hot water, they used to make a grand ceremony out of it every day at about 5 in the afternoon. Aside from the actual tea, they got to enjoy cakes and pastries, so it was more of a #drunch. And then they ate their dinner, too. Amazing. Well, if you've ever wanted to make any of the tea recipes showcased in Austen's novel, here's your chance. With this book, you can. It comes with a good deal of original recipes ranging from plum cake to good old gingerbread.

Jane Austen Books Coaster Set

I've decided to end this selection with a coaster set because these designs are those of Austen's most famous book covers. Besides, these coasters have a permanent matte finish, so they will withstand the test of time even if you clean them by hand and using a mild detergent. You do have to be a bit careful if you want to extend their life, though. Some of the customers describe them as soft and earthy while others say that they were bothered by the strong rubber smell when they took them out of the box for the first time. Fortunately, the scent disappears over time.

If you liked this post, would you mind sharing it with your friends?
