Forget the flashlight--the Lightleaf bookmark is a bookworm's must-have accessory. Designed by Valentina Trimani, the Lightleaf is as thin as a piece of paper, which gives it that dual use of light source and bookmark. 

Wireless and rechargeable, the OLED-equipped Lightleaf bookmark appears to be functional, convenient, extremely compact, and just plain sleek. See other innovative bookmarks below.

Implications - While e-readers have dominated much of the mainstream press over the past few years, most consumers still prefer to read traditional print books as opposed to their digital counterparts. Innovative reading accessories, especially thoughtful products with multiple functions, continue to appeal to bookworms who want to modernize their literary experience.
