    Is there a reason you chose a red LED rather than a white LED or a yellow LED? This is a good inexpensive way to make a book light for a reasonable price. There are LED calculators on the Internet that can help avoid feeding too much current to the LED and blowing it, but you should be fine with only 1.5 volts. If there is any doubt, the ammeter setting on an electrical meter could be used to check actual current flow.
