Read in the ideal light

ComfortLight is a breakthrough front-light that's perfect for reading in any lighting condition. The revolutionary ComfortLight is incredibly even and adjustable for a beautifully lit nighttime reading experience. And because ComfortLight illuminates the page, rather than emitting light outward toward your eyes, you'll enjoy a truly comfortable read. Curl up in bed, on the plane, or in your favourite chair without overhead lights. That's the pleasure of reading on the most evenly front-lit eReader on the market.
