Whatchamacallit 157: mini Book Light

mini Book Light

This is a nightlight, as a book – with a white light option, then five other, more colorful, options.

This is a relatively recent addition to my collection of junk: a pure impulse purchase: 15€ at a local home improvement store that I happened to be wandering.

I saw something like it for sale at a stationary store in Japan – as I recall much larger, at a much larger price point. I did not bite. I’d guess that I’ve seen it before in catalogues and museum shops, but never bitten. But at 15€, I had a moment of weakness.

It’s cute. It does what is advertised. About its only flaw is that it does not like to stay open in the 180° orientation; though maybe it will become more cooperative with age.

During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
