When holding the cover in a reclined position, the LED light was shining in my eyes. I used gaffers tape to make a shield, yet still will light the Kindle. I took a small piece of gaffers tape and folded one side over, leaving about 1/8" of sticky side exposed. I trimmed a diagonal portion off one end so that a non-sticky bit would extend past the end of the arm. Gaffers tape is a removable matte black tape that does not leave any residue behind when removed.
