Hello modkindle and welcome too KindleBoards. Congrats on your K2 purchase! I have several different kinds of booklights left over from my paper book days and none of the bookmark type really worked very with the Kindle. A light that extends above the surface like the MightyBright is my fav.
I have a mighty brite also. I ordered a headlight from ebay the other day. Got 2 of them for 9.99. There are 19 led lights in the headlight. It is adjustable and appears to be lightweight. They seem to be on there a lot. I didn't win the first auction and then they popped right back on there again. The auction ended fairly quickly so you didn't have to wait days for it to end. Paid with paypal. Was pretty easy. If nothing else it will be good in case of emergency. lol. the electric goes out quite a bit around here, especially in the spring.
Not that I really need one, b/c mom found me a little mermaid book light at books a million the other day. Bless her heart, she's always afraid I'll go blind reading in the dark. And this one is cute, b/c Ariel is propping the book up with her fin. But these would have been very handy.
Little lights that clip like that are also available at sports stores. I know that Cabelas has had one, albeit, not at Woot's price. I believe Dick's also has a version. Have not personally used them, but my boyfriend has. He likes to clip them to his ballcap.
I am doing something weird for a book light. I bought an ear light-it's supposed to hook over your ear. I hook it on my shirt and it works great. I like it better than having a light hanging on my kindle and it is really small. I keep it in a little draw string bag in my purse. I thought I'd pass this idea on.
