The LightWedge & Linger [Saturday Steals]

My Saturday Steal this week (brought to you by Archives of our Lives) is a LightWedge.  WTF is a light wedge?  It's a booklight.  But instead of shining light in Monster's eyes when he's trying to sleep, the light wedge illuminates the page from behind.  This might be the booklight I've been needing so that I don't wake Monster up with my powerful over-the-page lights.  Here's the manufacturer's product description:
The perfect book light
The leading book light for nighttime reading. Patented LightWedge technology directs all the light only on the page you are reading, without bothering someone sleeping next to you. The larger-sized LightWedge Original is ideal for hardcover books and large paperbacks. Whether reading in bed, reading on a plane, or reading in a car, the LightWedge book light is the perfect accessory for all readers and an ideal gift for travelers.
The one I bought is ocean in color and cost me $13.60, for the full-sized original LightWedge.  Regular retail, these run  $34.95.  This is a savings of 61%, not to mention what I saved in shipping and tax.  The wedge was $7.97 and the shipping was $5.63, and I feel like I got a steal. (If you follow the link above, and pick a different color option, you will see all of the colors that are available for $7.97) What do you think?

LingerAlso, this week, I got Monster's preorder (because I am remiss and have not yet read Shiver {I know! I know!}) of LINGER.  We paid $8.99 for the hardcover.  Remember how I told you about the awesome that is Amazon preordering?  $8.99!!  That's 51% off.  And it's brand spankin' new in stores this week total price paid for it to be delivered to my door.  *Snap*

Saturday Steals is a meme dreamed up and hosted by Camille at Archives of Our Lives.  Go over there now and check out the other awesome steals that people have gotten this week!

The Light Wedge sounds like just what my husband needs! He likes to read after I've gone to sleep and has hated every book like we've bought.

Where did you get the Lightwedge for 7.97? The link you put has it for 26.

Ahh! Amazon! If you change the color on the drop down menu on the link I posted, it will show you the color options they have for $7.97. I guess it defaults that link to the Amazon-provided and more expensive black. Sorry!

I bought it! :) In the same color you did. Thanks for the great heads up! :)
