As you may have read in the last top 5 Wednesday, this month’s prompts are freebies or throw back (where if you missed a prompt you can use it for this month). Today I bring you an interesting prompt that I hope you’ll like!
–Weird Book Accessories: these are odd reading accessories that I want to try out either to see if they work or just to have for fun–
Bed Prism Glasses | I want to be able to lay down and read without having to put my arms over my head and risk tiring my noodle arms and dropping a book on my face. The only con I see here is that I use glasses (not for reading- I’m near sighted; plus I am not a contacts type of person) so what if I can’t see the print? Unless these are slightly magnified, I don’t think these would work for me but I’d still like to try.
*Such a stylish pair too 😂
Clip-On Reading Light For Glasses | Ok, this is actually pretty cool because this means I don’t have to keep adjusting my book light every time I turn a page or worry about clipping it to the book. I just have to clip it to my glasses. Only con I see here is for non glasses wearing folk or what if I choose not to wear my glasses (I try not to wear my glasses when I read).
Book Style Tissue Box | I don’t know about you but I sometimes cry when I read and it would be pretty handy to have tissues by my side. What better than a book style tissue box? Just picture this: someone asks if you have any tissues (for some reason) and you whip out this bad boy and they’re dumbfounded because that’s not a tissue box that’s a book but then you PULL OUT A TISSUE AND THEY’RE AMAZED (ok, that’s exaggerating but still it’d be cool).
Illuminated Bookmark | ISN’T THIS THE COOLEST THING YOU’VE EVER SEEN!? The way it works is that the bookmark is a special film with ink that conducts electricity, then you put a lithium coin between the two ends (aka positive and negative). As cool as this seems I feel like 1) my fingers would get tired of pinching it 2) the film will stay bent after using it for a while 3) I’m not entirely sure what a lithium coin is unless they meant those small round batteries (at first I thought they meant a coin like a currency but then I saw lithium)
Personalized Library Embosser | This is pretty amazing and if you were to lend out books, this could be a reminder to the person that that is not their book and should return it to you and not keep it. I don’t lend out books but I think this would be pretty fun to do.
Have any of you seen or tried these out? I’m curious to see if these really work. I know Jesse the Reader has tried the prism glasses and had an odd experience but I wonder about the others.
Until next time!
