    I'm thinking of getting a Kindle. Just the plain old regular Kindle.

    not the paperwhite, not the fire.

    and I have a question.

    I want it mostly to read at night, in bed, without turning on a light. I don't want anything with LCD lighting because it is said that that activates the brain, preventing sleep.

    I was looking at them, and saw that they sell a case with a light to read in the dark!!!!

    so does that mean i can't read my kindle in the dark?

    I have an older model kindle and I need a light in order to read it in the dark. I usually use my ipad at night.

    The old kindle utilizes an e-paper technology which works great (is totally readable) in the brightest sunlight, but impossible to read in the dark. The Kindle case employing LEDs works beautifully. It does not use LCDs. Get the paperwhite. You'll thank me later.

    I have the first edition Kindle and I can't read it without a light (lamp or book light).
