Get a compact florescent instead of incandescent. They can use the same sockets that a incandescent bulb has. Fluorescents waste less energy and are brighter. If you get a bulb with a ~6500k temp then it will look the most "natural" as it imitates daylight. You can use the regular type they sell at walmart or the type you find in petstores. They are both the same in functionality.
