Whom You Know Celebrates Our 13,000th Post with Hammacher Schlemmer, America’s longest running catalog! The New York Public Library Reading Lamp Is Given Our Highest Recommendation.

Peachy Deegan has been reading since she was 3, but she just discovered a better way to read with Hammacher Schlemmer!  Manhattan needs something to light up its life now - after Hurricane Sandy combined with a blizzard last night - there have been some dark days here.  Whom You Know is absolutely thrilled to celebrate our 13,000th post in our nearly 4-year history with the incredible New York Public Library Reading Lamp, by Hammacher Schlemmer!
   It exudes class and style and lords over all other lamps!  It can successfully transition from a casual to a more formal room setting, and it's all in the celebration of literary achievement!  We've reviewed over 500 books in READ THIS, and now we'll be able to read the next 500 even better!
 Being able to see your book is twice as nice with the double bulb feature, and we adore the pull chains-so authentic feeling! Designed for the grand Rose Main Reading Room of the New York Public Library by famed Beaux-Arts architectural firm Carrère and Hastings (who also designed and constructed the library), this lamp provides scholars and researchers with clean, bright, focused light. The lamp has a white coating inside its brass shade to efficiently reflect and direct light onto reading materials, desk, or tabletop. 
You know we just published on Fashion in Impressionist Paris, read exclusively by this lamp!

 Now you can see what Peachy's been reading, if you haven't been reading READ THIS!
Top Ten Books To Read by The New York Public Library Reading Lamp According to Peachy Deegan:
 We show the desk lamp, but it is also available in table and floor styles for all your reading spots:

 And now you see what we're going to read next, by Mover and Shaker Peter Pennoyer Pal, Thomas Jayne:
Twin 60-watt bulbs (not included) provide ample illumination, while the shade prevents direct glare from shining in a reader's eyes. A pull chain connected to each light bulb socket allows readers to turn on one or both bulbs for personalized lighting preference. The solid brass base and shade are durable for long life, and the substantial material ensures stability on a flat surface.
