LED bulbs are perfect for task lighting like this. The little " star" emitters like they are using in the new mag-kites and the aftermarket driving lights have the perfect throw angle, even without any kind of reflector. Same with much of the strip light tapes. I have used it in the last two places I have lived, (I rent) and have just left it there for the next tenant. Never had to change one out yet.

If you like the delay factor of the CFL or straight fluorescent bulbs, all you do is stick a capacitor in parallel with the light strip. The wall wart will then take an extra second to fire the lights up.
