I switched to white letters on a black background on the Fire; then the only (perceived) "lit" portion is the letters themselves. The whole screen isn't glaring out at you. I have been pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoy that configuration compared to regular display.

There are also apps (disclosure: I am the developer of one of them) that allow additional screen dimming.

In addition to changing the brightness you can play around with changing the page to sepia instead of white. For some it seems to work better.

In the book - Tap the Text Settings (Aa) button on the reading toolbar, change the color mode.

Swipe down the top. Select "Brightness". Adjust as needed.
