Nook Light 7 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 0
When I bought my Nook at BN, they were showing the Lyra Light with it. That's the white one, stylish, clips on the Nook, 1 LED, takes two little dime sized batteries. It was brighter than the Sony book light, provided for Sony readers. It was recommended by another Nookie, obviously with better eyes than mine, and noticeably younger than me too, sigh. I found that I was fussing too much over the position of the light, trying to get it close enough to the screen to show enough light on the screen, trying not to point it directly at the screen, catching the light reflection in the glossy Nook bezel, trying to get the light evenly on the screen, you get the picture, no fun. Check this out. BN has the whole Mighty Bright line of book lights and sells them cheaper than Amazon. How about that? You can try the book light you like and find the one that's right for you. I use a book jacket type cover on my Nook and have discovered the Mighty Bright Travelflex is totally awesome. It is so bright, about twice as bright as the Lyra, the light head doesn't have to be so close to the screen, seeing the whole screen in uniform light is possible without seeing the reflection of the light in the bezel. Cost about $11, ooh, real bank breaker, 1 LED, 1 AAA battery, very light and well made. Comes in black, silver, some odd colors, not white that I know of. If you use a rubber jacket, or no jacket, or have really really bad eye sight, or just want to piss your spouse off, get the Xtraflex2, 2 LED's, 3 AAA batteries, heavier though, and a rip roaring $15 at BN, $19 at Amazon because they have the exact same thing, they say it's for a Kindle, which they buy in bulk, and will put yours in a brown box for you. Woot.

Checking out at my local Wal-Mart, and noticed GE LED Booklights for $4.86 item # 17212, nice blue/silver item. Works very well with my nook and Bookeen Cybook, just click or tuck in the back cover. Uses the less costly AAA, which is an additional plus.

When I get back to the US next month, I'm going to check out B&N, Books-a-Million, Borders, Target and Walmart to see if I can get a decent reader light. Those clip on types seem rather bulky and heavy. I did see one on Amazon that is a little nifty:

M-Edge e-Luminator.

Someone else found this:

E-book Light at Target for about $20

I looked into a specialized light for a while too, but I found a solution that's just as good and certainly is cheaper.
While I was in Lowe's for something else entirely I picked up a flashlight. Yes, that's right, a simple flashlight.
It's a 3 LED version that uses D cell batteries. Given how long D cell's last and the fact that it's LED I figure I'll be replacing the batteries in 2020 or there abouts.
While I'm lying in bed I put the flashlight on my shoulder and point it at the screen of my nook. It lights up the whole screen very well.
Best part, I have a flashlight next to my bed all the time, so if the power goes out I'm all set. And it was less than $4.00.

How's that?
