Bedroom Reading Lights

I like to read in bed, usually not a problem with my lighted Kindle, but occasionally I like a real book. Since we've traded the motorhome for a pull trailer, I've lost my reading light. There is a light overhead but it's the same as all the ceiling lights, not good for reading. Has anyone else had the problem and how did you solve it??? I'd like a flexible led light on each side of the bed, is this possible?

Is there an outlet? Saw some little reading lights at IKEA. Very lightweight and it's wall mounted.

Yup, we have the same problem, we have opted for battery powered lights like the puck style that provide local light but don't light up the room. Watching this thread for better solutions!

Had it in my sticks and bricks, Orderd an RV type lamp (there are many different styles you can get) and put in a 12 volt system.

in your case that is basically what I'd do, put in a 12 volt line and wire in a lamp.. or put in a battery operated LED reading lamp.. There are many LED lights that can be houng on a wall like that battery operated As Seen On TV light bulb (Anywhere light)
Home is where I park it!

Thanks for the feedback. I do have an outlet on my side of the bed, none on hubby's side. The Camping World light looks interesting, but it's only 4" long, sounds on the short side??? I think I might look into flexible led lights made for sewing machines and mount it about 20" above my pillow on the closet wall. Will post a pic when I decide and get one installed.
