Amazon’s third generation Kindle is about to arrive, and while it has a host of improvements over its predecessors, there’s still one issue: the e-ink display doesn’t have backlighting. The solution, it seems, would come from an old-fashioned booklight. Amazon is selling their own Kindle Lighted Leather Case, which is like their older Kindle case but with the addition of an integrated light. Best of all, the light is powered by the Kindle itself, so you’ll never have to worry about batteries — simply place the device in the case and metal conductors draw the power. You can get it now in a variety of colors for $59.99.
