I have a screen protector on my 600 but don't really think you have to have one. I'm just used to applying it to all touch screen devices to prevent scratching. It doesn't change the touch screen's responsiveness so you don't have to worry about that. However, I think it does add a teeny bit more glare. As for a cover/case for the reader itself, I don't like to add bulk or weight to my devices so I opted for a adhesive-backed cast vinyl covering.

Its super thin, light-weight and avoids adding bulk. Of course its best for only proctecting againts scratches and adbrasions. I like how it comes in plenty of neat designs and colors.

As for a light, I posted a thread about that not too long ago and got lots of great reccommendations.

Personally I ended up getting the Kandle Light and am happy with it. I chose it b/c it could clip directly onto my reader without scratching. It had a strong LED light source. And it was small and easy to pocket. It also came with a nice storage case, great for traveling. However, the shortcomings are that it uses the disk cells instead of a standard AA or AAA battery. It is not poseable like the goose neck ones. The light tends to fall off towards the bottom of the reader so I clip it to the side rather then the top.

Good Luck!
