Readers aren’t just for reading; a lot of crafters out there need them for crafting as well. I was recently given the opportunity to check out the readers from Readers.com and even give a pair away to one lucky reader!
The readers reviewed in this post were provided by Readers.com. All opinions are my own.
When I was approached to review Readers.com and their products, I had to explain that I am one of those blessed individuals who do not (as of yet) need readers. However, my husband does, and being a high school English teacher, he is an avid reader.
Both Doug (my husband) and I perused the Readers.com site. Me to get a general idea of how it worked, and him to find some new readers. Before I tell you our experiences, I want to let you know some of the many benefits of Readers.com.

I was really impressed with the variety of sizes, strengths, frames, and types of readers to buy. The prices looked really nice to me as well. Do be aware, not every frame is available with every option. Therefor the best way to search is to first narrow down all your parameters such as size, type, and strength. Once you do this you will have a smaller list that will be less overwhelming to look through.
Doug already had a pair of regular readers. He does find himself reading outside during the day on the weekends a lot, so he choose some sunglass readers. He was able to find a pair with the “smoky” lenses, as he doesn’t like “amber” sunglasses. If you do, though, those are available.
My questions about sunglass readers were would they really work for both functions? Would they dim the brightness of the sun without making the pages of the book too dark to read. I know I’ve had that problem with regular sunglasses.
Doug informed me that they really worked well exactly as they should. He could read his book in the sun without the white paper glaring the sunlight back at him, ans also without the pages being darkened so he couldn’t read them. The amplification was just as it should be as well. I was impressed.
So all things considered, I would say Readers.com is an awesome choice. If you craft outside you can get the sunglass variety, if you are at your computer a lot you can get the computer variety, and anyone else can get the traditional variety. No matter what variety you choose, you will have a great selection of stylish frames to choose from.
One last thing I want to share with you before the giveaway. Readers.com is proudly partnered with Timmy Global Health. Timmy is a non-profit on a mission to expand access to healthcare around the world and empower the next generation to tackle today’s greatest health challenges. By donating thousands of reading glasses to underserved communities in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Ecuador, Readers.com is committed to making a global impact. In the seven communities Timmy serves, access to eye wear is limited and many people face steep consequences if their eyesight begins to deteriorate. For example, if a woman relies on weaving for her income, farsightedness suddenly prevents her ability to see the fine details required of the trade. A pair of reading glasses can make all the difference.
