I understand your concern please follow the below steps in order to turn the screen light for reading in dark:

To adjust the screen light while reading, tap the top of the screen to show the toolbar, and then tap the Quick Actions icon .

Please let me know if it works for you if it does not we will try alternate solution.

  • To adjust screen brightness, slide your finger along or tap the scale to reach the desired setting.

    Tip: A lower setting works best for situations with low lighting, and a higher setting works best for situations with bright lighting.

  • To turn the light to minimum brightness, press and hold the dim light symbol. To turn the light to maximum brightness, press and hold the more light symbol. On Kindle Paperwhite, you can also tap Max to quickly turn the light to maximum brightness.

    Note: Even at the lowest setting, the light is not completely off.
