Which is best for me?

I've read through many/most of the threads and can't quite find the answers to my questions.
I live in a rural area where broadband is weak or expensive (satellite).. No DSL or Cable.
So, I need something with wifi, that will let me make shopping lists (typed is fine), small enough to toss in my shoulder bag, and then on my shopping trips I can find a hotspot (e.g. library) to download anything I want that's larger than a couple MBs --audiobooks, etc..
Also to pull up email on the few occasions when I travel o-o-t. I thoroughly checked out the Samsung Galaxy 2 Tab (Costco), and while I'm impressed with the device, it's way overkill for my needs. I'm not into gaming or videos. I have my reliable little e-ink device for reading.
So, I'm thinking the Nook Color with N2A should meet all my needs -- factory refurbished runs about $120 & has same as orig. 1 yr warranty. As of now, when I simply must get a large download (such as iTunes), I've taken my laptop to the library. It's NOT convenient.
It was my only computer for about 5 yrs and more than paid for itself, but now I want small and lightweight!
Would the Nook be a reasonable choice? Any better suggestions?
