I just use my bedside light. I don't like to use book lights, the beam is usually too narrow for me. And hubby can sleep with the bedside light on, so he doesn't mind.
I know what you mean, Chi Cygni, when you say you didn't want something 'male looking' I bought the red leather cover for my Gen3 for exactly that reason. I have three men in my house. But I got the black Opus because for some reason the black was on special offer from Tesco's on-line store in the UK. I'm more than happy with the black surround, I don't think I could've coped with the bright pink frame.
