Best light that clips directly to nook?

So, what's the best book light to get for the nook that doesn't require a cover? For my sony pocket I used a nice cover that had a light built in, but it was a bit heavy IMO. I'd rather just not use a cover while reading at home and have a lightweight light that clips directly on. The one B&N makes (the lyra) doesn't have the greatest reviews, so I'm looking for other alternatives.

The Lyra is a good light, if you like *bright* lights. I don't, so I'm using an m-Edge eLuminator2 tucked into the back of the Industriell Easel cover (see attachment). I prefer the m-edge low setting.

I've tried every one of the booklights at Borders and B&N - the handful that clip directly to the Nook require coin batteries or have excessively large clips that are too large for the Nook's bezel. And most are even brighter than the Lyra, as they have 2 or even 3 LEDs because they are designed to cover both pages of p-books.

There is also the Belkin Clip-On, which has two light settings. I'm thinking about trying that with my Opus.

Some people like the Kandle, others complain that it doesn't provide good coverage to the bottom of a 6" screen.

I wish Octovo would make a Solis for the Nook. It looks like it is a slick light.

And I forgot to mention - I *love* the quality of the Sony lights. The m-edge is the closest thing I've found.

I agree with the m-Edge eLuminator but you need one of their covers. m-Edge has several style covers that the light fits into. See link. http://www.medgestore.com/products/nook/

Thanks so much for the input and links. I think I may try out the lyra. Not sure if I like bright lights or not, as that's sort of subjective. The one on my sony was fine, it had two settings and I usually used the brighter one. Anyway, I think I'll try out the lyra, now that I searched amazon and found that the CR2032 batteries really aren't expensive as some people claimed on reviews of the lyra. You can get 25 for like $5. I like the idea of the light being lightweight, especially since I'll be clamping it directly on the nook.

I have the B&N Industriell cover. While the m-Edge eLuminator doesn't fit between the Nook and the center of the cover, it fits along the top or bottom edge with the light hooked around the edge of the Nook. This doesn't work with the original poster's request of not needing a cover, though.

Hmmm ... it is the "ergonomics and navigation" that have my wife absolutely delighted with her Kindle2.

Diff'rent keystrokes for diff'rent folks, I guess ....

So I picked up the lyra light and am really happy with it. Also ordered a bunch of batteries for it, and slip case to store the nook in when I'm not using.
