Good Book Light for the Edge?

Does anyone recommend a good light for the Edge? The ones I've tried don't spread the light out over the eReader very well but usually concentrate it into a spotlight (and I don't want to use the tablet side.)

I use the following:

It's small, light, very bright, and evenly illuminates the eInk side. It can draw power from the USB port or the included watch battery (both draw very little power, of course). Can also sit standalone on a flat surface, and makes a great flash light in the dark or an emergency.

One thing to mention. Some people find the LED light will flicker when plugged into a USB port on the eDGe.

I've observed this with the above light, although not always (e.g., right now it doesn't). Tech Support is investigating to see if there's something about how the eDGe monitors the USB ports (say for a memory stick or something being plugged in). The nice thing about the above light is that you can run it off the included battery (and being just 2 LEDs, the battery probably would last months).

According to Tech Support, if your EE battery is above about 85%, the light will flicker. Otherwise it will not. Weird!

Hmmm. When I tried it this afternoon, my eDGe was 100% charged and on AC, with no flicker...
