What is the brightest/most powerful light bulb I can put in my bayonet ceiling socket?

Hi,

My light is way too dim in my room, and I need a very bright light for the purpose of reading charts .etc

What is the most powerful (.e.g. Watt, brightness, whiteness .etc) bulb/lamp I can get for my standard ceiling bayonet-style light sockets.

Thanks.
