Travel and gadget blog giveaways feature the Beam N Read LED 3 Hands Free Travel Book Light. This energy efficient light has 3 LEDs in a row and an extra long 120 hours of battery life. As a reading light it works with all eReaders such as the Kindle, Nook, and Sony Reader, traditional paper books, and newspapers. The long battery life also makes it ideal for travel, camping, and as an emergency light during a power failure.

"The Beam N Read is by far the best personal reading light we have ever come across," said Scott Carmichael, Executive Editor of, the world's top travel blog. "The product is simple to use, and works with any model of eReader. As we start the 2010 Holiday season, eReaders and tablets are going to be one of the biggest sellers. Without an effective light source, many e-ink based eReaders are useless in the dark, especially on overnight flights." Gadling will begin their giveaway in mid November.

Crafts blog giveaways offer the Beam N Read LED 6 Deluxe Hands Free Light, the first LED book light with a night vision filter and hands free magnification. The extra wide light from 6 LEDs in a row is especially useful for quilting, knitting, and crochet. It lights up personal space for crafts anywhere including in a chair, car, plane, or even in bed without disturbing others. The extra bright light is also helpful for aging baby boomers, seniors, and others who benefit from brighter light for reading and other activities.

"You can't sew if you can't see," said Ami Simms, author, award winning quilter, and 2005 Teacher of the Year by the International Association of Professional Quilters. "The Beam N Read Hands Free LED Light is the best solution for stitching in low light situations, at home, or on the road. Now I can throw away that miner's helmet". The giveaway on Ami's blog, Through the Eyes of A Quilter, is running from November 1 to November 15.

"Our goal is to increase traffic and engagement with participating sites and raise awareness of our reading lights," said Friedman.
