Thanks to the generosity of some friends, I have a new Kindle and can even get a nice case for it. I see I'll need a light also. What do you all have? Or what do you recommend? I've heard that some of Amazon's lighted cases were busting the case of the Kindle or something. I don't want anything too thick,so it will fit in my purse.

I got this one and absolutely LOVE it:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00428C1I0

It's under 20 dollars, which makes it less than half the price my mother paid for her case, and the quality is way above hers. It's really well-made, and pretty too.

It doesn't have a light though I tried a few different clip-on lights and haven't found anything yet that is able to illuminate the entire screen evenly, so I just use a small desk lamp while reading in bed.

When I was given my Kindle, I was also given the black leather looking cover from Amazon.

I used it for a year but didn't care for it at all.  It doubled the weight of my Kindle.

Now I've got a simple zippered case, not cover, that I bought on sale at Target and really like it.  It's padded fabric and weighs nothing at all.  I have learned I really prefer holding the Kindle without a cover.

I've got a Kandle light but haven't used it.

Congrats on your new kindle!

 

I have this one http://www.amazon.com/M-2dEdge-Accessories-eReader-Blue-2f-28BN1TR1CNB-29/dp/B00368K5NA/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1299353994&sr=1-9

and the light to go with it http://www.amazon.com/M-Edge--Luminator-Booklight-Compatible-Generation/dp/B003ZJUWHY/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1299354068&sr=1-1

I love the light because there is a spot where the light slides into the case and holds it secure while you are reading. The light has 2 strengths and illuminates the whole page.

I have this cover and love it, and I really like this light for reading in bed. If I was to take it in my purse, I would take the Kandle.

Thanks for the input. It was so hard to decide. I really wanted something "different",  but wanted to get it from Amazon so I could use my gift card. Finally decided to splurge on this one. I didn't get a light yet.
