My recent favorite item: LED Book Light

I do origami anywhere in my house, and anywhere I go to.  At a restaurant, in an airplane, on a picnic table at a park, etc.  As long as I have a solid surface to fold on and good lighting besides paper, I can do it anywhere.  And that's the beauty of this form of art.  "A solid surface" is relatively easy to get; all you need is a table, a lap table, a clipboard, or even just a book to fold on.  But good lighting is not always easy to come by, and it is a must since I want to have those very precise folds, every time.  Besides, my eye sight is terrible in dark.  

So I recently bought a little book light.  It is called MiniFlex LED Book Light by Mighty Bright.  I bought it for about 10 bucks at Fred Meyer but it's available at Amazon, etc. too.  It clips on to a book or it can stand by itself.  It has a flexible neck.  It's so compact you can take it anywhere.  I brought it to a plane recently, and it worked better than that light on the ceiling of the plane.  I plan to bring it to camping trips this summer too.  I think it will come in handy at anywhere I travel to.  I highly recommend this product to anyone!
