Submission + - I need and want to read more, should I get an eBook or Tablet? 1

gspec writes: I read less and less nowadays, but I realize I need to get back into my old reading habit. Should I get an eBook or Tablet? Would it help me to enjoy reading more?
A little relevant background about me: I probably can spare 2 hours a day to read. I do not travel a lot. I am not a fast reader, if I force myself, I could probably finish a standard length novel in a week. English is my second language, so built-in Dictionary is a nice thing. I enjoy Netflix. I have bought many computer/technical eBooks from O'Reilly for reference. I have many technical reference PDFs. I have 300-400 bucks to spare for this. I have a Dell laptop, iPad2 (wife hogs this), MBA, and a desktop.
So what do you think? Should I get one? If you think I should, eBook or Tablet?
I don't mean to be rude, but please no "Up to you" answers, because I already know that :). Also I know I don't need it, but I want it. I would like opinions based on your knowledge and experience on reading using eBooks/Tablets. Thank you in advance

  • I would go for an ebook, the eink screen is better on your eyes for reading. I own a tablet and it is just to much to try to read a book on, but the eink screen device; I can just keep reading. let your eyes choose but I recommend the ebook.
