I have used an 'itty bitty' book light for many years now. My brother gave it to me as a present. I am an avid bedtime reader and have absolutely loved this light. I have tried so many others that I can't count them all. I especially like the adapter feature, however, I also agree with other reviewers about the wiring not holding up at the switch. I just purchased another 'itty bitty' book light today. Even though I have had to replace the light portion, I am still way ahead dollar wise not having to use batteries when I use the light at home with the adapter. The battery pack being seperate is a great feature for use on paperbacks while camping or on the road. Overall it is a great product.

I have been waiting for an Itty Bitty Book Light for the longest time. Years.!I had one when they first became available and after several years it just did not work any longer. My son gave me a gift certificate for Christmas and after careful thought of what book I would like to enjoy next, the thought came to me!!! an Itty Bitty Book Light. I did have to pay an additinal amount for the shipping as I was not a member .. that was OK as I was so excited. I waited and waited for the arrival. I had the light about a week or 10 days when the bulb blew out and when replacing the bulb the light no longer works at all .. not electrically or by battery. Unfortunate, but true .. B&N has decided that since it has been 14 days since the order (remember I did have it shipped) they will not replace it. So now I am without an Itty Bitty Book Light again and I am very sad. And I most likely will never shop at B&N again.

    Times have changed but this product has not

    I was searching for the best, brightest, most compact book light to use at night while my husband is sleeping and I'm awake with a 'page-turner'. Sadly, although this was the best light I had owned (and lost in a move) years ago, it is not any longer. I had forgotten that it is corded to a battery pack making it's set-up and ease of use too time consuming and cumbersome. In a day and age where everything is 'wireless' this light is now a dinosaur. Cheaper and 'bright-enough' alternatives are available.

    Terrible quality. My daughter loves this light, but I've had to

    Terrible quality. My daughter loves this light, but I've had to replace it three times within 18 months. One unit failed after one use.
