How can I turn this floor lamp into a reading light? I want all light exiting upwards from the lamp shade to point down.

Do I just buy a mirror and put it on top of the lamp shade? Then the mirror can reflect down any light. But is this safe? I use a fluorescent light bulb, but it still heats up! I don't want fire hazards.

I'm afraid I don't understand how this is a physics question - it looks like e.g. a DIY or home improvement question to me. Would you be able to expand on why this is about physics?

Get the proper lamp for the light pattern you want.
