You might not think of it, but a good reading light is an essential. No matter how hard you try to stay on top of your reading, there will def be times in your college career that you’re left with a whole book to get through before a 9 am class the next day. Trust me — it happens to the best of us! 

If you’ve got roommates, then keeping your bedside lamp on all night isn’t an option. But don’t worry — as a former literature major, I’ve pulled my fair share of all-nighters, and have sampled more reading lights than I can count. From portable stick-on wall sconces to wearable spotlights, these are a few of the best reading lights to use under your duvet covers, without disturbing anyone in your dorm or room.
