Not need exactly but it makes the whole reading experience better, especially on dull days. I have a PW but I don't read in the dark. The light is set just below the level at which it "glows" and looks like a lit screen, then I have the appearance of a paper book but with better contrast than a normal e-ink screen. It works for me.
