Kindle Reading Lights – A Buyers Guide


If you’re the kind of reader who loves to read in bed, with a partner who loves to sleep instead, then you’re probably well aware of the need for book lights that satisfy both parties! This is no different with the Kindle – a device that functions much like a real book.

Can’t You Read The Kindle In The Dark?!

Some people are shocked to learn that you can’t read a Kindle in the dark – just like you can’t read a book in the dark! The main focus of the design of the Kindle was to create a screen that didn’t strain the eyes like computer screens do. This meant using “e-ink” technology. It doesn’t use a backlight, which is why you won’t be able to read it in the dark without the use of a book light.

Although some people may view this as a downside of the Kindle, it’s actually one of the things that has made it as popular as it is. After all, it wouldn’t be easy for people to give up their beloved books if the Kindle reminded them of reading off a computer screen. Not to mention the fact that you can’t read traditional backlit screens in the sun! With the Kindle, you’ll almost think you’re reading from real paper, and you can still see the page in full sunlight when you’re away on vacation!
