simply particular: eBook-Light - a great new option for reading devices

simply particular: eBook-Light - a great new option for reading devices:
"The clip is as wide as the light, so it grabs onto the device firmly, and doesn't wiggle. Because there are 3 LEDs, it is quite bright, but the light is even across the whole screen, from top to bottom. Because you can adjust the angle of the light, you can avoid hotspots pretty easily. There is just the slightest hotspot at the very top, usually in the title bar, not over actual text. It is a bit overpowering in a dark room, so I may add a piece of Scotch tape over the LED section."

OK, now I may re-think my prejudice against e-ink readers because I can't read them in a dark room. Then again, clip-ons are kind of a pain to keep track of and keep recharged.
