Reading Light

Apologies if this appears anywhere else, but I couldn't find anything when I searched.
I know there's been talk of portable reading lights (possibly clip-on LED?) and just wondered whether anyone had found/tried/tested any that they could recommend?
Thanks!

The Mighty Bright Xtra Flex is wonderful. It's clip on, has two lights (you can have one lit or two), and uses regular batteries.

I LOVE mine. Got it at Amazon.

Mindy, there are a couple of good threads on lights. Start with the first URL and then move to the followup thread after. There are also some good photos for you to have a look at so you can see some of these lights in action. They are in the Sony forum, but they are just as relevant to any other 6" eink device.

You are very welcome. I hope you can now easily find a light that fits your needs. Someday, I might get one of those buglights as it has a nice even spread of light.

I have been using a petzl headlamp, It doesnt clip to your Reader but since I have other uses for it as well, I figured it could pull double duty.

+1! I got my MightyBrite before I even got my Kindle! Accesorizing is important.
