I do not like the location of the reading lights in my Coachman 5th wheel .They shine in my eyes rather than on the book. They are located in the ceiling. I would like to use LCD lights that are adjustable and can be mounted on the wall. We dry camp a lot and replaceable batteries would be acceptable.
I have searched the web but have not found anything I like. Looking for suggestions.

Headlamps

3 AAA batteries for 100 hrs, $30 at LLBean or REI(any good outdoor stoor).

Handy, don't disturb spouse at all, and double as good walking light or general flashlight.

I just got her another one for last christmas, she loves it.

Wife just used a book lite. The ones she has use an adapter for battery or 110VAC power, so it is ready when and where ever we are. She definately does not like the LCD ones though, The light color is not good for her reading. Batteries usually last over a year with no problem. Several vareities available at any large book seller like Barnes and Nobles

I did not like the oem light over our bed since it shined all over, and I could not sleep when my wife wanted to read. Also when boondocking, I wanted to save on the power, so I got a wall mount, adjustable, home fixture that used the 12vdc MR16 bulb. Then swapped in a LED model. Uses hardly any power, is plenty bright, and does not get hot. The bulbs are from here.
