shelter 7 - if you don't have kids, why would you read in the bathroom?? In the bath maybe but if you did have kids there is no way you would have any peace to read.

Sorry Cathy, I think this one missed the mark. Loved the first one though, very elegant though my old eyes would probably need a more direct light.

I don't like uplighting for reading, but the others are great.
