How Big Is A Lightwedge Paperback? – Timberdoodle Homeschool Vodcast #0038

We have sold Lightwedge booklights for years, and our customers love them as much as we do; but it can be difficult to decide which size to get – the Paperback Lightwedge or the Original Lightwedge. We’ve recently been able to purchase Paperback Lightwedges at stunning discounts, and are passing the savings on to you. But you need to decide if it is really big enough for you, so Daniel will show you how big it is in comparison to some of the books we offer. He also shows you a tip for using Paperback Lightwedges even with very large books.

Do You Need A Lightwedge Case?
Not all models come with cases, nor do all families need a case. If you don’t mind a few scratches and your family won’t be excessively hard on the light, you will probably be fine simply storing the light inside a book as our family has done. However, if you want to keep the lens pristine or are blessed with a house full of rough & tumble tots, click here to see the Paperback Case! (we expect it back in stock in January)
