booklight for DX?

I did the search but most finding is about kindle.
Does there an good lcd based booklight for kindle dx? It needs to cover the whole screen smoothly.

Or I should just get a lamp? If I do which kind of lamp is best for eye? I spend too much time with computer so I decide to use kindle dx to reading to protect my eye. Now I find out my read light is horrible. It is dim and yellow. I would like to spend some money to get a decent reading light.

Thanks for any suggestion.

I found a what I think is the perfect lamp for the DX. It's affordable ($10.00 not on sale, Home Depot), compact, and provides good (not great) coverage. It's marked "Energizer" so I suspect it's widely distributed. A small non-marring clamp at one end, the LED is at the other end of a flexible stay-in-position cable.

hehe chew through those batteries please!
I think most of those tiny lights are on replaceable batteries. I think this is the best reading light I have seen (good reviews)

I got myself Mighty Bright XtraFlex 2 for my Kindle DX.

Three low-cost AAA (you can buy rechargeable) batteries, long lasting, strong LEDs, quite a uniform lighting.

What else can I say? For me, it just works!
