You could always buy clip-on book lights, but why not install dedicated reading lamps on one or both sides of the bed? These diminutive fixtures not only provide ample illumination for the page and keep glare out of your bedmate's eyes, but they also help to make your side of the bed feel like its own private corner of the house. Plus, you don't have to leave your cozy nest to switch them off. Tip: Hang wall-mounted reading lights close to the sides of the bed or above it (about 6 inches from the edge of the mattress or headboard). Place them at a point that makes sense for the position in which you read: sitting straight up, stretched out on your stomach etc. You want the beam to shine directly on the page, not at an oblique angle.
