Mc_Newlywed:Mine's not. I have a case that has a light built onto it. You pull it out when needed. And it takes power from the kindle.

BFab11:I think the new, tablet-like one is, but the originals are not. Backlighting is harsh on your eyes, so it's more comfortable to read for longer periods of time without it.
this. i have a regular one and i love it. i don't have a built in light case. if i want to read at night in bed i just leave my bathroom light on and crack the door a bit. it's enough to read by without getting on dh's nerves.
