Lighting a desk space

I am a student and spend several hours a day studying at my desk at home. It's way too dark and I need more light. It sits in a corner underneath two shelves that are drilled in to the wall and cannot be removed. The overhead light sits behind the desk and is blocked by my body when I am sitting at the desk. I have placed two lamps on the shelves, but the shelves block much of the light from reaching my desk. The shelves are too low to place the lamps on the dest directly.

Do you have any ideas? I'm looking for either a lamp that can fit underneath the shelves (about 14-18 inches), or a light source that I can affix to the underside of the shelves,(which would have to be battery-powered and wireless.)

Hi rick..,
I think you should be used one lamp on your study desk because when you used two lamps then the light become too high and for you difficult to study.
