    HI!

    I'm very new to the exciting world of electronics but I am very eager and excited to learn.
    For starters I am looking to make some custom lighting for a bookshelf I am building. I want to place two super bright LEDs in each box (10 total) but I need someone to tell me step by step, in "idiot" terminology exactly what resistors I need, how many and where to place them, how to wire the LEDs (in Parallel? another way?), and how to run power from a wall outlet to an on/off switch and to the LEDs. I have a basic understanding of the LEDs, Resistors, and wiring, but, IMO, I do not understand the math well enough to safely wire my project on my own... I would love any good advice/ Directions on how to properly wire 10 seperate boxes with two LEDs each to a switch and to a power source for maximum life and safety!
