Look for bulbs with a GU10 fitting. The ones recommended here by Argos will do the job, but are perhaps not perfect for everyone, especially for reading. Things to look out for are:
1) a high as possible CRI (this stands for colour rendering index, and tells you how faithfully colours are appear under the light. The Osram model at Argos has a CRI of 80, which is OK but not great.
2) Colour temperature. This is a guide to the colour of the actual light itself. They can range from 2300K (a brownish/reddish) to possibly 15000K, an intense, almost blue/white The Osrams recommended are 2700K, which is a bit like an old-style bulb, sometimes called "warm white". Some prefer this but for reading I would suggest 3500K-4000K, sometimes called "cool white"
3) Beam angle: For reading or close work you want a "spot" light, concentrated on the object or text in question. A beam angle of 25 deg or less is best for this. The Osram bulbs have an angle of 36 deg, so a bit spready..
So to sum up....If you can find these, or similar, I can assure you that you will find reading etc a pleasure! (they are more expensive, of course!)
