So, as I read in the closet (yes, I really really do), I was a bit depressed about the prospect of giving up my reading time for the next week. And as you can see in this pic, there is no light in the closet (the black abyss is my closet), it's not like it has windows. Which wouldn't matter anyway because I usually read in the middle of the night.
So, I came up with a very quick solution which actually works better than the closet light. A BOOK LIGHT!! Yeah!
I ran over to the Barnes & Noble and picked up a lime green book light. It's one of my favorite colors which you would know if you could see my kitchen aid.
I was very excited at the prospect of a lime green light and the fact that I didn't have to stop reading. That would have sucked because I'm in the middle of a very yummy series that I just can't put down.
So, here is a pic of the light I bought. As a side note though, I don't think I would recommend this particular light because I bought the thing like 4 days ago and the light is already faded. Even if it did cost only $12 it still should last longer than 4 days. I've been using it for about 3-4 hours a night for 3 nights (one of the 4 nights I fell asleep). So, probably not the best quality. I think I will return it and get a better one.
(Its the travel light from Barnes & Noble).
As of now, the light in the closet is fixed, but I still use the book light to read because it never wakes up the hubby and that means no one bothers me and I can read til all hours. SWEET!
Have any of you had reading dilemmas? They aren't the most fun when your a bibliophile, I read to escape and cope with the world around me. A week without reading would have been hell!
Now I'm off to Borders to buy me some vamp books!
