Daylight bulbs are better for E-ink screen reading
For those who read on a Kindle without front-light (non-Paperwhite, that is), you may find it easier to read it if you replace the bulb in your favorite reading lamp with a DAYLIGHT spectrum bulb. At least I find it so. Very clear difference.
You get them in the modern energy-saving flavor, so you will also save 75% on the electricity.
As to why this would be so, it makes sense to me that when one uses *all* the light receptors in the eye to their full capability, one gets a clearer image. Like a camera sensor, different receptors are sensitive to different colors of light.
Additional advantages is that your indoors photos may look better, and if you don’t get all that much sunlight on your face in the winter-time, then having daylight-spectrum indoors lamps may actually lift your mood.
