From the submitter:

So you have a ceiling fan in a room with a cathedral ceiling that needs a light bulb and no ladder available. Using a broom stick, an empty pill bottle, a hair scrunchy, a large chef's knife, and some duct tape you can build Bulb Changing Tool 5000. Simply cut a series 1-1/2" long slits lengthwise starting at the open end of the pill bottle to make a collapseable bulb holder. Wrap the hair scrunchy around the pill bottle to enable a nice grippy action. Punch a hole in the bottom of the pill bottle.

Instructables user hanlin_y did the math and realized that alkaline batteries are one of the most expensive forms of power that consumers can use. So he/she/it came up with a solution to power your parts even if they don't come with an AC adapter. With a wall plug, wires, and bamboo strips you can run your electronics off the grid; saving money and the environment at the same time.

From BPerry2:

I was able to build this lamp for under $20 (US) The books cost $6, The Switch and fixture cost $7.50, and a few misc. items that was another $4.

Another successful book lamp from a dedicated user! That particular light bulb looks brilliant, a great addition to the build. If you missed the first one, here's what user Richard C made last week. Well done guys, let's keep them coming!
