Mighty Bright, a company who make lights for all manner of purposes have a rather fine reading light for your Kindle to sell you.
This LED reading light comes with a small and rather neat clip to simply clip onto your ereader’s case as you can see in the photo.
Whilst it is actually intended for the Kindle 2, but it should fit any reasonably slim ereader out there.
As you will see from their blurb below, this light is highly flexible in both senses of the word, so you can clip it onto the side of your ereader at whichever point best distributes the light over the screen for your purposes. I have found that I often prefer to clip such lights onto the top of the screen, rather than the side, but it is all a matter of angle I have found. And with this one, you are free to clip it on wherever you want.
Further being an LED light, it goes on for hours and hours of happy reading on one small battery, which happily are triple A batteries, so cheap to buy – unlike many of the smaller ebook readers which use those expensive and short lived disc shaped batteries, which I hate with a passion!
So, here is how they describe this small wonder:-
Mighty Bright’s Beam eReader Light is made to stay at your Kindle’s side, for users who crave the ability to read any time, any place. When your reading space is coffee-shop dim, subway flash-and-flicker, or even pitch dark, flick on the crystal-clear LED. This elegant, lightweight attachment features a petite clasp that hooks around Kindle’s edge and into the screen’s bezel, for a snug fit that stays clear of the screen. The solid base of the arm pivots 360 degrees, and its gooseneck twists and bends silently. Position the arm 35-40 degrees away from Kindle to create a rectangle of light across the screen. Get the most out of your light by purchasing it with Mighty Bright’s Kindle Cover. Folded flat, the light is an exact fit with the genuine leather cover; no need to detach the light, ever. Cozy up with the perfectly portable Beam eReader Light.
Seems a fair description to me having used one of this type of ereader reading light I can happily recommend them to you without reservations.
