I bought it with the intention to use it with the light on - otherwise I would have just bought the $69 Kindle.
A background light of some sort wouldn't be 'paper like'. Thanks I just wanted to know that without light there will be no improvements (except the resolution). I can stay with my 'old' Kindle.
