Lol. I do the same thing. It's like camping. Extremely fun.
To the original poster. It's just the difference between backlit and e-ink. You need a light source for e-ink. End of story. Up lamps are terrible for reading a regular book and e-ink, but I have no problems reading with a single 60-watt bulb in a small table lamp beside the chair or bed. I find cloudy days when outside are fine for reading, but inside I'd need a lamp.
