LiliLite: An All-In-One Bookshelf, Reading Light, And Bookmark

by Brad MerrillJune 23, 2015

LiliLite is a bookshelf, reading light, and bookmark combined into a single easy product for reading in bed. The Kickstarter campaign has raised $25,000 of its $70,000 goal, with 22 days to go. The company hopes to deliver the product to backers worldwide this fall.

LiliLite is really simple: you mount it over your bed, and one side of the product holds a stack of books while the other side holds a single book, marking the page where you left off. When you grab your book to start reading, a sensor activates the LED reading light, which illuminates the pages just enough to read comfortably. When you put your book back on the shelf, the light automatically turns off again.


LiliLite can hold up to 11 pounds (5 kg) of books. The bulb is interchangeable, so you can choose any color or intensity of light. And you don’t need a left and right version for a double bed: just flip it around when you install it.

According to the Kickstarter campaign, LiliLite is past the prototyping stage, and the money raised from backers will be used to start mass production.
