I don't mind not having a light, as I want the Kobo to READ on, and books don't have lights in them either!
Side note, I just tried reading some "Walking Dead" on it, and it works fine enough. I am pleasantly surprised actually. I might pick up at issue 49, where the first compendium ended on the Kobo. They are always in the account then if Kobo comes out with a 10 inch model *drool*.
