I have gotten the Kindle reader app for my iTouch, and also have other reader apps for it. I am reading several different books on my iTouch, each one on a different reader. I find the iTouch is good when I'm on the go & try to snatch a few pages when I can. I'm retired and drive a School Bus twice a day, so the Touch is perfect size for a pocket. But if I'm going on an all day Field Trip that involves hours of just waiting around, the iPad would be great. I just plug in to the bus plug-in and I'm good for hours for music, books, podcasts, TV and now with the iPad, movies and the internet! I've about convinced my self to go with the 3G version for those times when I'm stuck in the bus at a rural football game or at a UIL competition. I'll just have to be creative about ways to enjoy it out on my own, without all the other drivers trying to watch over my shoulder!
