    What is that way?

    well actually it is not really easyer, it is more efficient :
    when you take apart an lcd screen from a laptop, you find a thin transparent acrylic plate wich is called a light difuser. above or under that plate is a small neon tube powered by a small power converter wich i guess runs in 12 or 5 volts. take these to parts out. glue them together like you found them( one on top of the other) and there you have it!ho and you can use a 9v bettery for the power converter if it runs in 12 V

    What about the power consumption of the 9V battery? If I use the 9V battery this little thing will looks like pretty big know.But anyway I will try what you say,Coz I wanted to get more light :D Thanx for the comment.

    hey man great idear.
    try to use evonik endlighten plexi found at:

    it is specialy designed for lighten the cutted sides and decouple the light out of the side you will put on the book.
