I was recently contacted by Brad from Gone Reading to see if I would like to review more items from Gone Reading. I, of course, said yes. What an honor! I loved the items I reviewed last summer from Gone reading. I received three items from Gone Reading: BookBax Pro, TravelFlex Booklight, and the Paperback Lotion. Here's my review!
The Travel Flex is a sweet little book light that solves all of the problems that I found with booklights as a kid. (I may have owed a fair few in my day while reading in the middle of the night under my blanket.) This small little reading light is truly LIGHT. It folds nicely to fit a pocket, purse or backpack and it doesn't weigh down your book as you read paperbacks. The light is perfect for reading in the dark without bothering those near you. It would be perfect for long train rides or flights when you have near neighbors while trying to read. I found that the light allowed my husband to sleep peacefully next to me while I was reading. I also enjoyed that the light did not cause eye strain as I tried to stay awake long enough for "just one more chapter".
This lotion was a wildcard because really, how do you describe the smell of a brand new book or a well loved antique book? I can't. I found that I didn't really care how the lotion is described because it is lovely. It comes in a sturdy package that I feel safe keeping in my purse. (Which my children will occasionally step all over in their haste.) The bottle and the scent are unisex, just like the hobby of reading. My husband, my eldest son and I all use the lotion often. The feel of the lotion is absolutely luxurious and non greasy. The scent is intriguing, I keep sniffing my hands when I have it on to try and figure out what comprises the scent. I know that everyone has their own preferences but our family greatly enjoyed this lotion and the Paperback scent.
I once again must thank Brad from Gone Reading for his generous offer of items for review. He is a wonderful friend in this hobby. I hope that you will CLICK HERE to check out Gone Reading. They have items for every reader, no matter how they read and they have great gifts for the literary minded as well.
