My 7-year-old is becoming a stronger reader every week. However, I keep waiting for him to hit that moment of complete reading bliss. I do know that his willingness to read on his own drastically improved when we got him a reading lamp -- the above Minnen Wall/Reading Lamp ($7.99) from IKEA -- and mounted it on the wall next to his top bunk bed.

Here are a bunch of simple but cool bedside reading lights for kids — elementary age on up to teen -- and they all come in under $35!
