I don't mind doing some reading on my netbook. I am typing this post right now on it, but it wouldn't be my first choice unless like I said, standalone e-ink readers became a thing of the past, a "former trend". I guess the actual possibility is a bit of a stretch, but I do hope the "basics" remain, to make e-reading accessible for all people.
you noticed you didn't really answer?

Given e-readers dead and given the choice of reading on a LCD tablet or on a LCD netbook, you'd be reading on a netbook?! That frankly makes no sense.
