Yes, yes, most people need papers or books or something as they work, I know. But more seriously, a low-wattage LED task light might be more efficient & less annoying.

I'm lucky to have a private office, and the overhead lights are almost always off. It's just a personal preference, but I keep a number of smaller, softer, perhaps more power efficient lights on, to make the space more attractive.
