Why You Must Have A Book Light?

Life has always been an adventure, an endless trek full of different surprises most of which are recorded in books. There are compositions that are so fun to read that it often magnets the attention of most readers. Writers such as William Shakespeare, Nicolas Sparks have become big names in their own rights due to their beautiful novels. Most these masterpieces already have their own movie counterparts.

But as a reader, there is always a feeling wherein you feel the story line or the whole novel itself was distorted. There is that feeling the writer has been betrayed which is why most of us today would still go back to books. When we talk about books, it is also necessary to consider having a book light, or should I say the best book light in the market right now. This tool will aid you in the moments when you want to be soaked up to the fantasies that those beautiful novels bring.

Travel Reading Light
There are a few things to consider when deciding for the best book light. All of the book lights in the market serve one sole purpose, to aid a reader in low-light situations and thus still enjoy reading in the absence of proper lighting. Thus, the best book light must bring a good amount of light. Let’s consider one of the most common technologies nowadays.

Most of the book light you can see in the market today utilizes the so-called LED technology reason being the energy is tightly packed and concentrated and can emit generous amount of light when used in low-light to dark places. Hence, we can say that the best book light must be using this technology, too. We don’t want any compromises when it comes to our quiet times which is why it is important to have the best book light handy all the time.

The second factor probably to consider is the portability of the book light for it to qualify as the best book light. Well, that is not really an issue nowadays since all book lights are built small and easy to carry by anyone. So the most important thing to consider is the kind of material being used in terms of body built. Flexibility is also one of the most important factors when choosing your own booklight.

There are two main things being used in terms of making these book lights. We have metal, and the hard synthetic plastic which also gives the same durability as that of the metal one. Now we have talked so far about the kind of technology being used, the portability of the book light, and kind of material being used to build its body. The last thing to consider is the amount of time you spend in reading, this I think is the best consideration we should look when choosing the best book light.

Book lights have built in rechargeable batteries so you don’t need to replace them every now and then. So when picking up the best book light, choose the one with the battery size that suits you best. You don’t want to ruin your imagination by loosing your one and only source of light.

Now I’ve pointed out all of the important factors in choosing the best book light. It’s your call now!

Being Sloane Jacobs
by Lauren Morrill January 7th 2014 by Delacorte

Meet Sloane Emily Jacobs: a seriously stressed-out figure-skater from Washington, D.C., who choked during junior nationals and isn’t sure she’s ready for a comeback. What she does know is that she’d give anything to escape the mass of misery that is her life.

Now meet Sloane Devon Jacobs, a spunky ice hockey player from Philly who’s been suspended from her team for too many aggressive hip checks. Her punishment? Hockey camp, now, when she’s playing the worst she’s ever played. If she messes up? Her life will be over.

When the two Sloanes meet by chance in Montreal and decide to trade places for the summer, each girl thinks she’s the lucky one: no strangers to judge or laugh at Sloane Emily, no scouts expecting Sloane Devon to be a hero. But it didn’t occur to Sloane E. that while avoiding sequins and axels she might meet a hockey hottie—and Sloane D. never expected to run into a familiar (and very good-looking) face from home. It’s not long before the Sloanes discover that convincing people you’re someone else might be more difficult than being yourself.

Let the Storm Break (Sky Fall #2)
by Shannon Messenger  March 4th 2014 by Simon Pulse

Whirlwind romance and breathtaking action continues in the sequel to Let the Sky Fall, which Becca Fitzpatrick called “charged and romantic.”

Vane Weston is haunted. By the searing pull of his bond to Audra. By the lies he’s told to cover for her disappearance. By the treacherous winds that slip into his mind, trying to trap him in his worst nightmares. And as his enemies grow stronger, Vane doesn’t know how much longer he can last on his own.

But Audra’s still running. From her past. From the Gales. Even from Vane, who she doesn’t believe she deserves. And the farther she flees, the more danger she finds. She possesses the secret power her enemy craves, and protecting it might be more than she can handle—especially when she discovers Raiden’s newest weapon.

With the Gale Force weakened by recent attacks, and the power of four collapsing, Vane and Audra are forced to make a choice: keep trusting the failing winds, or turn to the people who’ve betrayed them before. But even if they survive the storms sent to destroy them, will they have anything left to hold on to?
