A gooseneck reading light is so named because these lights have a long adjustable neck or arm that resembles the long neck of a neck.
Goose neck reading lights come in two basic forms a desk or beside lamp that is designed to sit on a desk or night table and the wall mounted gooseneck reading light that is mounted on the wall over the bed.
Why People Like Gooseneck Reading Light Fittings

Which is Best Wall Mounted or Bedside Lighting?
Many people find themselves wondering rather wall mounted or bedside lighting is best for those people who enjoy reading in bed. While bedside gooseneck reading lights are better than bedside lamps that do not have an adjustable arm or neck, a wall mounted gooseneck reading light is still a better choice for a number of reasons.
First, Even the long neck on a bedside gooseneck lamp can not be adjusted enough so that the light shine over your shoulder onto the pages of the book, which experts agree is the best way to light your book’s pages to avoid eye strain. A wall mounted light on the other hand, can be mounted above the headboard of your bed and then the adjustable neck can be moved to fine tune the light so it does fall in the best position for reading.
Second, wall mounted gooseneck reading lights free up space on your bedside table so that you can place other items close at hand.
