Does anyone else remember the Itty Bitty Book Light? It was a ’80s-era reading light that you could clip to your book. (All the current product listings look to be out of stock, except for used ones on eBay.)
I prefer this option, which is designed to clip onto your headboard (or table, desk, etc.) and also can stand up by itself. It’s been great for my son — when he has trouble sleeping, he uses it to read without having to turn on a bright lamp. If the dimmest setting gives you more light than you want — there are nine brightness/color combos — the light’s flexibility lets you angle it away from yourself as far as you want.
I think this light would also work well for putting on makeup or for using in a baby’s room during middle-of-the-night diaper changes. It charges via USB but lasts quite a while on one charge, depending on the brightness level you use.
The light, which is available at Amazon from one of those random all-caps brand names, is only $11.99 and is eligible for Prime. Flexible Clip Reading Light
