As an entire generation of baby boomers age, they begin to realize their eyes are quicker to fatigue from everyday reading and in many cases this is due to reading in low light conditions that were never a problem before. The makers of the Periscope(R) Book Light in a Book Cover(TM) understood this reality and designed a reading light to provide a complete solution for an aging generation of readers.
Periscope's patented LED Book Light in a Book Cover is easy to use and only requires three AA batteries rather than clunky cords, wires or plugs. The bright LED book light is stored in the spine of the book cover, protecting the book you are reading while making it impossible to forget the book light.
"Whether readers are reading at night or just need additional evenly dispersed light, the LED Book Light in a Book Cover provides a simple solution to an aging problem," said Eric Fisherman, president of Periscope. "As we get older, the unfortunate truth is that our eyes strain in low light conditions. We simply refuse to accept this limitation and have designed the Periscope(R) Book Light in a Book Cover(TM) to provide bright even light coverage over the entire page. Reading enjoyment is enhanced and eye strain is reduced!"
The Periscope(R) Book Light in a Book Cover(TM) is now available nationwide, in versions for both hard cover and paperback books, at Barnes & Noble stores and at barnesandnoble.com.
How bright is the idea behind Periscope?
The patented Periscope(R) Book Light in a Book Cover(TM) eliminates all cords, clips and clutter and lets you read what you want where you want in all types of low-light reading environments -- while protecting your reading privacy. These Periscope products feature a LED book light, a book cover, and a bookmark in a single lightweight unit. Unlike other reading lights, the Periscope book light is always with the book you are reading!
Readers never have to search for or carry a separate light for the hardcover or paperback book they're reading. Simply slip the book into the Periscope book cover (there are separate covers for hardcover and mass market paperback books), pull up the retractable light that's stored in the spine of the book cover and start reading in all low light environments! The Periscope adjustable twin, wide-angle LED light automatically turns on when the arm is extended and shuts off when collapsed into the cover. What's more, because the light is totally adjustable, readers can put the reading light precisely where they want it for maximum reading comfort. And, because Periscope is battery powered by three AA batteries that deliver over 40 hours of continuous light, there are no cords or plugs to worry about.
The Periscope(R) paperback Book Light in a Book Cover(TM) fits all mass market sized soft cover books and carries a suggested retail price of $34.95.
