As I say, I have a Kobo Glo that, while it has some differences from the PW, apparently diffuses the light in a similar manner. Perhaps the quality control is better for the Glo (no one seems to be complaining about pink blotches on the screen, etc.), but that's not really the point.
Wouldn't a book light have a lot of wasted light, falling on the bezel, falling off the sides of the e-reader, or bounced into ambient light around the room? That would be unappealing for me given I have to not disturb my partner in bed.
