yesterday some people were talking aobut lights. I hate reading at night with a headlamp. I like this thing: http://www.thinkgeek.com/clearance/gadgetscomputing/5cf2/
I have the big hardcover version of it. the only problem I have had with it is that the light came out the edges and into my husbands eyes. so I took a big fat sharpie to the edges and the problem was solved.
you should get one.
