Beam N Read Review

One of my all-time favourite things to do is curl up in a warm bed with a good book. I’ve been an avid reader since I was a very young child and love to lose myself in a good book. However, when I got married and had to share a bed, I lost touch with my favourite pastime. I could only read in bed when I was either by myself because John was away or staying up late. When he is in the bed with me, I can’t keep the light on to read and even my little night table lamp bothered him. Sadly, I have not read myself to sleep in awhile, but things will be different now. I’ve got a nifty little tool that will let me read in bed without disturbing John!

Beam N Read

The Beam N Read LED 6 Deluxe Hands Free Light is genius! It’s basically a light that hangs around your neck illuminating whatever is front of you. It’s battery powered with 6 LED lights that don’t burn out. It takes 4 AA batteries that will give you 50 hours of light using all 6 LEDs and 100 hours of light using 3 LEDs. They also have two clip-on coloured filters. Red is for night vision and orange to give you a softer light and reduce blue light.

It also comes with a 4″ x 5″ Acrylic Fresnel Magnifier that clips on the light. This is mainly to be used for detail work like knitting, cross-stitching, etc.

It’s super simple to turn on. Just flip up the light to turn it on and flip it down to turn it off. Flick the switch to turn it from 3 LEDs to 6 LEDs.

You can use the Beam N Read for more than just reading! Use it for crafts, camping, power outages or even going in to check on the kids after they are asleep. We have had a few power outages here and now I feel a little more prepared with the Beam N Read. It’s no fun trying to read in low light!

I personally like using the 6 LED lights with no filter when I’m reading in bed. I don’t have eye strain and John is able to fall asleep. It’s a win-win for both of us. I also like that it doesn’t have to clip onto to anything. I’ve tried book lights in the past and always had issues getting them to stay in place.

You can buy the Beam N Read on their website or from  for $29.95. Amazon also has free shipping since it’s over $25! Canadians will have to buy it from the Beam N Read site since won’t ship to Canada.

The Beam N Read LED 6 Deluxe Hands Free Light is a practical gift idea  for a book lover, crafter, parent, senior or camper on your holiday gift list.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Fashionista Events hosted by Still Blonde after all these Years and Modly Chic for Fashion.  I received a review product as a thank you for participating. Fashionista Event bloggers are not responsible for sponsors that do not fulfill their prizes.
