Voracious readers can usually name a few bookish accessories that make their lives easier. Bookmarks, highlighters, pens, a book journal, eyeglasses—all of these things make it easier to immerse oneself back into your book of choice or refresh your memory on the book’s content at a later date. The noble and under-appreciated book light is one bookish accessory that most insatiable readers find necessary. Flashlights, candles, and lamps are great, but they don’t give you the personal glow that is necessary for all night reading sessions and camping trips. For many of us, the best book lights are an imperative accessory for our reading life.
Choosing the most perfect and best book light is difficult, though. There are more features and options than ever before. Unique design possibilities also give some book lights multi-purpose functionality. With all that in mind, it’s near impossible to choose one, single best book light. Here are a few of my favorites to start you on your path to matchless book light perfection.

Orange and red snap-on-filters will help keep that pesky blue light, which can damage your eye health, at bay.
