Called the Bookmark, this reading light from the house of Kyouei Designs has a printed circuit inside along with LEDs that light up when you pinch the ends together with a battery. The bookmark is made from a transparent film, printed using a conductive ink making a simple circuit paired with a set of ultra-thin LEDs. When you connect the negative and positive ends with a standard CR2032 watch-sized battery, the LED will glow. The company recommends using lithium coin battery with the transparent film.

You can avail this paper-thin flashlight from Designboom’s online shop for just $16. Instead of using a paper bookmarks to mark your pages, you can use this reading light, which benefits you in either way.
