      All-Purpose Book Lights. Our lights were originally sold as book lights but these days our customers use them in all kinds of creative ways; for auto repair, in the dark corners of your attic, for gentle light during middle of the night diaper changes, or anywhere else you need portable, focused light. Night brings the barbarism of the Holocaust to life with a realism that no other book has been able to capture. Perhaps no other work has fully mastered the reduction of humanity of that time period.

        The crisply methodical work of the Nazi death camps spreads over night and day and brings to life the fanatical intent of Hitler to wipe out all traces of European Jewry. The night that envelops their humanity erases mercy and human feeling. Even more significant is the darkening of young Elie's idealism. No one knows what the night brings Bloodletting, lycanthropy No one knows, what the night brings I am the one that sits at the foot of your bed When you think you're alone at night To make sure you're, tucked in oh so tight Now don't be scared, I only want a bite In dark shadows, lurk strange things No one knows what the night brings.

        There is a bit of a controversy going on, regarding Elie Wiesel's book Night. This book was first published in Paris in , and it has sold over 10 million copies. For years, Night has been assigned reading for students in almost every High School in America. Now, a famous revisionist historian, Carlo Mattogno, has. God’s Word can bring you peace and comfort in the darkest of night. Don’t let your worries keep you up! Reflect on these Scriptures to help you rest in His presence. When you lie down, you will not be afraid, when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
