reading lights in cockpit

The swivel seats are the most comfortable place to read. Has anyone installed 12v LED reading lights in cockpit?

I was thinking of trying something like this clipped to the headrest or the headrest supports:

That's an idea too. Where do you clamp it?
I bought two of this 12v lights, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o04_s00. They can be affixed to the ceiling. I just need to figure out where to tap into a 12v line. TV is where I'm thinking right now.

I thought I'd clamp it on the post that holds the headrest when you raise the headrest a bit. These are battery powered and last a long time, so no need to tap into 12v.

Turns out they don't clamp very well to the headrest posts, but the clamp nicely to the bottom of the sunglass holder. I put two there this past weekend and they worked perfectly. Little LED lights run forever on 2 AA batteries. This will be my solution rather than trying to wire something in.
