This book light is flying off the (virtual) shelves — and it's down to $12

If you love to read at night (and save money), have we found a product for you: The Glocusent Book Light. It's versatile, compact and happens to be flying off the (virtual) shelves because at $12 shoppers can't scoop it up fast enough. With this little gizmo, you'll be able to wind down with a good book before bed without driving your partner crazy, and it also makes the perfect gift for the bookworm in your life.

Say hello to your new favorite reading companion!

$12 at Amazon

Why is it a good deal?

At just $12, this is the lowest price we've ever seen for this book light, making it a great time to buy. It also has over 11,000 five-star ratings to back it up!

Why do I need this?

With an impressive five brightness levels to choose from, the Glocusent Book Light isn't your average reading aid. It also has three color modes that serve different purposes: Amber, which filters out 99.9% of blue light and helps minimize eye strain, Breeze, ideal for comfortably reading novels, and Precise for enhanced clarity. With so many options, you'll be able to find the perfect setting, allowing you to read what's on the page without disturbing your partner (or hurting your eyes).

It provides up to 80 hours of light — depending on the brightness level — and when the battery's low, it easily recharges via USB. Another cool feature is how adjustable it is; there are multiple angles it can be positioned to, and you can flip it left, right or downwards.

Lightweight and compact, you'll be able to toss it into your bag and bring it anywhere!

What reviewers say

Over 11,000 Amazon customers love the Glocusent Book Light.

This reader raved: "Great design, very easy to clip on and position for optimal bedtime reading, great lighting intensity options, long battery life, easily recharged ... I loved this thing so much I bought another one to gift a book-loving friend! Five radiant stars!"

"I have had several reading lights, and this is the absolute best one I have ever had," gushed another impressed shopper. "I love the size of it, and the fact that you can change the strength of the light or dim it as much as you want. I love the swivel so that you can adjust it for reading either side of the page, and it’s not big and bulky, it’s compact and easy to charge."

One five-star fan's only complaint? "I wish there was no metal on the clip. I wish it was a full plastic clip so I wouldn’t be worried about it scratching my cover."

For a buck more, you can snag it in this pretty pink.

Can we talk about how far you can walk away from your Bluetooth device? Because the distance is amazing! I went outdoors in the yard and forgot I was on the phone these never disconnected it was great. My Beats no way they'd have stayed connected. Calls are crisp and clear paired with my Samsung phone.
