Maybe I will look into a better clip on light. Not for the Aura though. I don't want coolreader because I don't like coolreader. I'm actually okay with the standard Sony reading app. Not saying I might rooting T1 one of these days, but the Aura I am probably going to sell as soon as I get back to the real world. It's big and looks like a picture frame and just does not work adequately. I know that doing as you suggest would address my issues to a point, but I would still resent Kobo for not spending a few bucks on making it work. Probably have one lonesome programmer in a cage living off beer, bologna and potato chips.

My clip-on light is Ozeri Kandle Flex. I also have Ozeri Kandle 2, but I prefer Flex.
Besides, I am using that light very rarely.
If I were using it more frequently and/or if I were a woman with a purse which is larger than a pocket, I might prefer the Sony cover light.
As to Aura - CR Solves the main issue, the same as on T2 - you no longer need to use their way of handling books (with shelves / collections).
No need for shelves, no need for Calibre.
No need to wait while the device is indexing books.
Because Cool Reader has its own integrated file browser and its own list of recent books.
So you can use your own nested folder structure for books - which is so much better.
I know, shelves may include the same book multiple times in various collections, an advantage, but disadvantages are huge. The main disadvantage - shelves are not nested.
Also, no longer those annoying Kobo issues (mainly already fixed by Metazoa, though).
So, Cool Reader allows me to use my ownt folder structure, and it allows to switch on/off the internal indexing of books and internal fonts, so I can see instantly which way is better for a particular book.
Plus, on T1/T2 I have many more and better dictionaries with CR than with the Sony reader. But on Aura, CR has no dictionaries so far.
Aura is useful if you don't want to read in landscape orientation but you still want to have comfortable margins and an appropriate text width between them (as in printed books, assuming you are using a font of a similar size).
With T1/T2 I prefer landscape.
