Sure, they’re called book lights, but they can be used for a variety of purposes. Some clip-on designs can easily be attached to books, laptops, headboards, or even stand on their own as desk lamps. Wearable, around-the-neck designs are great for any close-up work, including crafts and home repairs. Wearables can also be used for safety while biking or jogging at night.

A book light can’t help you find more time in your day to read, but it can help you read comfortably for extended periods by focusing light directly on the page. This decreases eye strain, dry eyes and fatigue, while also allowing you to be considerate of others around you who might not want light shining in their direction.

Many book lights come with a variety of brightness settings, so you can adjust for your reading environment.
