Yes, the lighted cover is a bit spendy, but I decided that since I'll probably have my K3 for at least 2 years (at least until really good color models come out) I'd splurge. The idea of reading in bed with just the Kindle really appeals to me. Apparently the lighted cover works really well from early reports. Also, the fact that it doesn't need its own separate batteries is a huge plus.
