I love my E Ink display Kindle (3rd generation with keyboard). I don't
particularly enjoy reading off of backlit display as it wears my eyes out
pretty fast. Also start adding backlights, gorilla glass, heavyweight
processors and you add weight and heat to the device. For me, no matter
what kind of tablet I may or may not ever own, I will always keep an E Ink
kindle just for reading.

I think the best advice though is the same advice I'd give to anyone who
ever asked me what kind of camera they should buy back when I made a living
as a photographer â the answer is always "The one you will use."

Decide your budget then head out to the store and handle a few of these
things. Read off the screen for more than 5 minutes. See which one is the
right size, weight, and shape for your hands. Which is going to be most
comfortable for you to hold for long periods of time and easiest on your
eyes. Then buy that device. Apps and converters make which device you go
for a moot point. But if you spend your cash on something that's just not
quite right, the slightest bit uncomfortable, or just seems to fragile to
cart around, it's going to end up on that shelf next to that fancy 35mm SLR
kit that turned out to be too much to drag around with you. ;^)
