Lamp timer - the opposite of a snooze alarm?

I'm wondering if somebody makes kind of the opposite of a snooze alarm - a lamp timer with a "not snoozing" button for reading in bed. I'd like to be able to set a timer to leave my bedside lamp on for (say) 30 minutes and then then automatically turn off. OK, there are plenty of cheap timers that would do that, but I'd like one with a button I can just tap to turn it back on again for another (say) 30 minutes. I sleep better in the dark and I would prefer not to have the light on all night long when I fall asleep reading. Standard dial-and-pin timers are a bit inconvenient for this kind of use, especially when I'm a bit groggy. And, speaking of groggy, I'd like the power plug to be pretty far away from anything I'd be handling while still in bed. Every dial-and-pin timer I looked at had the lamp plugging directly into the box and the box plugging directly into an outlet. I'm in the US.
