night book emits warm, soft light when pulled from bookcase

whereas secret doors open in studies of fiction stories when a book is pulled from a shelf, a warm light is mysteriously revealed when the night book is pulled from its shelf. by simply taking it out like a book, gentle illumination emits from the crevices and spreads from where its pages should be. it makes the room almost poetic in its ambience, using its light to help people be enlightened by what they are reading.
