Proving that two heads are better than one, the Zelco Hydra illuminates… (Zelco )

Book lights can save the day or, more correctly, the night, when lamps are not an option, but it’s annoying to have to constantly maneuver the little lights from the left-hand to right-hand pages.

But what if your book light were double-headed? There is such a thing from Zelco, the creator of the original Itty Bitty Book Light. It's called the Hydra, and it looks like ant antennae minus the ant, consisting of two long flexible necks, each topped with a flat flexible LED light so both that sides of a book can be illuminated at the same time.

The necks rise from a slim base that slips onto the spine of a hardback or paperback book, kind of like a big, galumphy paperclip. The push-button beams are bright but not glaring. Runs on two AAA batteries (not included).

Zelco Hydra (11722) costs $20. More info online or by calling (800) 431-2486.
