@Beam_N_Read Annual Pre-Holiday Giveaway

I’m so excited to be taking part in the Beam n Read Annual Pre-Holiday Gift Giveaway this year! I absolutely love my Beam n Read light! Here is some info from their website….

The Beam N Read Hands Free Light from ASF Lightware Solutions is a versatile, personal, portable, LED light that is worn around the neck and lights up personal space. Often compared with clip-on “book lights”, a Beam N Read Hands Free Light delivers much more flexibility than a book light. It delivers a wider light than clip lights, easily works with newspapers as well as books, and provides anywhere, anytime lighting for tasks like knitting or writing without disturbing others. Battery life is a lot longer so the ongoing cost to use one is less. Standard alkaline batteries last for 120 hours in the Beam N Read LED 3 Hands Free Light with 3 bright LEDs. This compares to book lights with similar light that advertise battery life of 20 to 40 hours. Batteries in the Beam N Read LED 6 Deluxe Hands Free Light with 6 bright LEDs last for 50 hours compared to 20 to 30 hours advertised for clip lights with similar light. The utility of a Beam N Read light is further enhanced with its support for clip-on color filters, large clip-on hands free magnifiers, and AC and vehicle DC power adapters. Included accessories vary by model. You would have to buy several other lights to get the same functionality as just one Beam N Read. When you want an energy efficient, hands free LED flashlight with long battery life, a Beam N Read is the answer.

You may remember my post about it back in January. In that post, I wrote about how I loved to use my hands free light to knit or crochet while watching television with the lights off. I still think that is a fantastic use for the Beam n Read Light & do it often.

This past summer, though, I discovered another very useful way to utilize my Beam n Read LED Light. Our power was out for over a week because of a really terrible storm that swept through our town. It was miserable, especially since the temperatures were near 90 degrees every day.

As you can imagine, the house would get very dark at night. I was blessed to have received a couple Beam n Read Hands Free Lights in January. My entire family was thankful that we had them. We were able to slip them around our neck and complete simple tasks such as going to the bathroom, fixing a sandwich, or going up the stairs. These lights truly were a helping hand!

Be sure to check out Beam n Read’s website for lots more information about these fantastic lights! They really do make a great gift. Visit them on Facebook and Twitter too. Have fun entering our awesome giveaway for a chance to win your own Beam n Read Hands Free Light.

    I would give this light to my sister. She is a knitter and I’m sure she would love the hands free aspect.

  2. Kathleen B says:

    I want one, I want one, I want one so badly. Okay, I just had to get that out of my system and now I can enter your Rafflecopter giveaway. Woohoo and thank you!

    • Kathleen B says:

      Sorry, I got overexcited, but I’d have to say as a clarification that I would very selfishly give this lovely gift to myself because I have wanted one for forever now. There…I’ve said it…and I’m sticking to it!

  3. Pat V. says:

    I think my husband would find this very useful for tying flies.

  4. Becky Greene says:

    I would also keep it for myself because I have reached that unfortunate age where I need really great lighting to do needlework. Aging really isn’t for sissies!

  5. Paula Lee says:

    Because my light keeps the hubby awake at night.

  6. Ken Ohl says:

    I must say the lights keep my wife awake

  11. Carla G says:

    I would love to have one of these to do handwork with while watching tv, but I’d also like to give it to my son as he is always reading and this would make it so I don’t have to constantly remind him that he should turn on the light. thanks for a chance to win! :)

  12. count me in on this one!! would be perfect to pack away for retreats too!!

  13. I belong to a hand stitchery group. It would be fun to have a giveaway at our group get-together. We have all been complaining about poor lighting issues.

  14. Patty says:

    I would give to my mother. T think this would help her with her impaired vision.

  15. Lisa Marie says:

    After reading about using your beam and read during a power outage I think this would be perfect for my son. He recently moved to New Orleans and lost power for a week during Isaac. And I expect it won’t be the last hurricane he’ll experience there.

  16. Gene Black says:

    I gave one of these to my Mom last year, so I would gift this one to myself!

  17. Sheila says:

    My mom would love one of these lights. She loves to crochet at night and it looks like it would be great for that

  21. MoeWest says:

    I would give it to my DH because he likes to read early in the morning. And he could share it with me because I like to stitch later in the evening.

  22. Sallie says:

    I would keep it for myself because I like to read in bed and the light bothers my husband, so this would be great – it would be a gift to him, too!

  23. tam childers says:

    id keep it myself i love reading in bed but the light often bothers my husband.

    My son-in-law … he likes to stay up in bed reading with the light on! This would be the perfect solution for him to read, and my daughter to get to sleep! :)

  26. Sally Murray says:

    I would love one! Quilting and reading are my passions (and love to blend the two, reading about quilting/quilts and novels with quilting themes!)

  27. KAthy h says:

    Sounds like a great light. I would give it to my daughter who is in a community band. Sometimes they have concerts outside in the dark and it would be so helpful.

  28. Nicole Sender says:

    I’d love this for myself so I can read at quilt or night.

  29. Tammy Hempel says:

    This light sounds great. I would love to have one. Thank you for the giveaway.

  30. Iesa says:

    Great giveaway, would love to win one to help with my beading at night.

  31. Ann says:

    I would like this for just me, I am a full time caregiver and the spot that I knit or
    crochet in is dark. No real outlet close. Thanks for the chance.

  32. shelly says:

    I would gift the light to myself! Then I could watch TV with my hubby and not have to listen to him complain about the lights on during his movie.

  33. Nancy says:

    This has been on my wish list for many months! It will help knitting at night.

  34. knttingdancer says:

    I would give one of these LED lamps to my sister that knits. Her apartment doesn’t have very good light. It would be a great Christmas present.

  35. Anna S says:

    I’d give it to my mother. She lives in Alaska and it’s getting pretty dark out, like usual. It’d really help to have the extra lighting!

  36. Maggie says:

    I’d love to have this for when I go to the cabin. Task lighting is hard to come by, but I always have a book or a project or both right there with me!

  37. Linda says:

    After making it through hurricane sandy, I really appreciate auxiliary light sources to keep knitting!

  38. Michelle says:

    I would use this myself. My living room is extremely ill lit and I have a hard time seeing not only my crochet patterns, but what I’ve got on my hook. This would be a great remedy.

  39. Patsy Pirnat says:

    This is a super gift idea for all of the readers in the family.

  40. Zan says:

    I would give this wonderful Beam n Read to my Mother (who would also share it with Dad since he is an avid nighttime reader). She loves to read, do crosswords, knit and make jewelery. She could use it in bed but she could really use it in the living room. Very strange plug placement = very poor lighting.

    Thank you for offering this giveaway!

  41. cathe barron says:

    This light would get a lot of use in my house. Firstly, I crochet and sometimes, while watching tv at night I just don’t want to put the big light on…this would allow me to crochet in peace & light while allowing my husband to see the tv without it being so bright in the room. My husbad puts together model planes…there has been more than one occasion when he could have used a light such as this one, and it would have freed me from having to stand there and hold a flashlight on his project so he could see it better. :) I have many more uses since we live in hurricane country, but I see my answer is getting too long…C

  42. Julie says:

    Thank you! I would gift this to myself because with my aging eyes, it’s becoming much harder for me to see my craft work. It would be such a help to me!

  43. Emily C says:

    I would keep it, because I need more light for my craft projects.

  44. Theresa says:

    I’d be selfish and keep it for myself. My eyes have deteriorated to the point I need to have several bright lights pointing at my work in order to do my crafts. I think a light like this would help immensely.

  45. Doris says:

    I would give the light to my Dad. He has macular degeneration and needs bright light ven during the day to read at all. He can do very little in the evenings unless he has a bright light and therefore can’t read if he can’t sleep, as he wakes my Mom. I think this would be perfect for him.

  46. Bonnie Larson says:

    I would keep it for myself – selfish, I know, but I am finding it harder each month seeing all the tiny stitches….. Thanks for the opportunity on a super draw.

  47. Beth T. says:

    I would put this in our “Go Bag”. In an emergency situation it would be comforting to be able to read a book or look at a quilting magazine.

  48. mary fanara coleman says:

    For reading in bed for now.

  49. Desta says:

    I would give this to my Mom who is having trouble seeing as well as she used to so she could use it for reading or crafting at night. I would love one myself for emergencies too.

  50. Jan says:

    If I won, I would use this while doing my hand applique, crocheting, reading at night, etc. It would provide the light my old eyes need.

    Thanks for the great giveaway.

  51. If I won, I would be so tempted to keep it for myself because I crochet and knit and the extra light would be great in the evenings or on cloudy days. But since we have to say who we would give it to, I’d give it to my husband and then I could “borrow” it whenever I wanted… lol.

  52. Michele P. says:

    my almost 11 year old because she loves to read everywhere and sometimes there just isn’t enough light!
