    Bright & light!

    Out of all of the book lights I’ve tried recently, this has got to be my favorite one. It’s super lightweight, durable, and very bright but not blinding. It’s perfect for night reading because it’s a softer white light rather than a direct bulb that you have to make sure the angle is perfect or else it irritates your eyes. It’s very easy to charge and does not weigh down, tear my pages or dent my covers of my books, which is very important to me. Never will I get anything else (unless they stop making this product.)

    Bad Bad Product

    This is a very poor product, I bought 3 (1 from ebay & 2 from Bestbuy) none of them charged at all. I charged all 3 a couple of hours, then pushed the button to turn them on, not one of them came on!!! So I then charged them overnight, same result, what!!!! I can understand getting a bad product from ebay, but 2 times in a row from BB??? Anyway, I highly recommend avoiding this product at all cost. I'm very suspicious of all the good reviews on this product as well....

    Garbage

    I bought two of these for my daughter and I, and neither one of them will turn on without being plugged in, even after several hours of charging. This is apparently a common issue I have come to find after doing some research, and there is no way to fix it short of taking it apart and rewiring the whole thing to charge properly. Would not recommend this unit to anyone for any reason..

    It Was Nice While It Lasted

    We bought this book light for our 13 year old niece for Christmas. She liked it, her mom thought the USB plug was neat, for once we felt like we'd hit a home run on a gift. Then tonight she asked if it had a warranty because it stopped working. Twenty bucks for something that lasted 7 months. She's not the kind of kid who would be rough with it, she values her reading time far too much to do something that would mess up her book light. I'm disappointed and so is she.

    I am SO disappointed i. This purchase. I bought for my husband as a Christmas gift, gave it to him early and the thing DOESNT EVEN TURN ON. Went into YouTube and apparently this is a recurring problem with this product where the button is faulty. Threw out the receipt and it’s out of the package so I can’t eve get my money back- DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!!

    Easy to use and charge book light

    This slim backlight is easy to take along as a bookmark and charges quickly from a USB port. Getting the tab to stay in the USB port of a wall charger or laptop is a challenge, so I recommend having a USB 2.0 extender cable and plugging into it. 2 LEDs give plenty of light and you can vary the light level. A great portable light for reading without disturbing others or for travel.

    At least no battery replacements

    Easier to illuminate more of reading material with easier bendability. Really like not having to purchase expensive replacement batteries. Was expecting charge to last nearly as long as batteries but does not. Have to recharge it after just a couple of nights of short reading. Will have to get into a habit of plugging it in all the time to keep a bright charge, which is not convenient.

    Not as good as I'd hoped.

    I hadn't used a book light for several years, so I expected there to be a great improvement in the technology. I like the ability to recharge the light, but I don't think it holds the charge long enough. It seems like I have to charge it a bit too often, and often in the middle of using it. The light is quite bright when it is fully charged, though, which is a plus.

    Got a light?

    When you need a little light and don't come equipped with a third hand, this is for you. The body is easily configured to direct the light where it's needed, keeping your hands free for the task. The built-in minimalist USB makes charging easy with no cables needed. I don't need it often, but when I do my Moleskine rechargeable light lights it up.

    I really enjoy and appreciate the function of the book light and computer light. It is very convenient and well made. It is a moleskin lamp. There is actually nothing about using it that I don't like. I have already recommended it to two friends. Both of my friends intend to buy themselves one the next time they are in Best Buy.

    I like to read in bed, but my wife can't sleep with the bed stand light on. That's where Moleskine comes to the rescue. Their book light is compact, easy to charge via the built in USB connector and it throws serious LED light right where you need it and no where else. I'm very happy to be able read in bed again without getting yelled at. Thanks, Moleskine!

    Good Reliable Book Light

    Ran across this while shopping for a flashdrive at BB. The light recharges via USB and charge lasts quite a while. It is a little thicker than a typical bookmark and would probably work best in a hardcover publication but I have been using it in paperbacks and have not had any issues the lights (2) are bright and make reading in the dark a breeze.

    A good, slim book light that I can use for any type of book. I like that it's rechargeable because the type button cell batteries that book lights use end up costing more than the book light itself. That said, I do wish the light was a little more even. Maybe three LED lights instead of two?

    I loved it! And then I lost it : ( and cannot find another one just like it. It's thin enough to use as a bookmark, holds it's charge well, can be charged off computer, elec. outlet or solar charger, is flexible and lights up a large portion of the page without lighting up the whole room.

    This booklight works well to illuminate the page. It can be tricky to have it actually "cling" to the book if you are sitting in bed reading. Having the book on a hard surface or having a larger firmer book, as opposed to a small paperback, makes it much easier. Light is bright enough and charging through usb very convenient.

    This caught my eye as I was headed toward checkout. I had been looking for a portable light and love its functionality. It can be bent to adapt to lighting needs and is easily rechargeable on your computer's port. Great product at a great price.

    I have used my Moleskine rechargeable book light a lot. The light is easily bright enough to read by, and the bookmark type design makes it easy to attach to a book. It is light enough that it is not a nuisance to hold. All in all, I am very satisfied.

    Perfect light for reading in bed or while traveling. Super light weight and flexible and it lights up both pages easily without having to move it around. I love that it charges by USB so I just plug it into my phone charger base every once in a while.

    I like the fact that this is a rechargeable booklight. I'm still getting used to the amount of light it generates. I think it needs more light. I keep positioning it to the part where I'm reading. Over-all it's a great booklight!

    Useful for the bookworms in you life & rechargable

    Needed a gift for someone that is extremely into books. This worked out perfect for her, so she can read at night (as all night owl bookworms know happens frequently), and then recharge it during the day when it's not in use.
