About Steve

I’m Steve Leveen, the co-founder of Levenger. My wife, Lori, and I founded the company because we saw a need for better reading lights. But then we saw that there was more to it than that: an opportunity to design products that helped people to read and write and work with ideas. So that’s what we made our mission.

A confession: for years, I was the guy selling products to serious readers and wasn’t one. But I had an epiphany a few years back and have become something like a Well Read Life evangelist.

I’m passionate about reading because I think it’s how many great thinkers, famous and not, are spurred to action.

I think reading can change lives, and I want to know how it’s changing yours.

There’s more of the official bio stuff on the Levenger website. I do want to add that Levenger had three amazing mentors, Leo Weiss, Ric Leichtung and Stanley Marcus. They taught me the value of reaching out, and that’s something we’ve always tried to do with our customers.

My blog is a way to reach out to another community just as valued—all of us who find in reading a way to live a richer, more action-filled life.

Wishing you your best well-read life.
