Once you get your refund you might try Best Buy. Some are having luck there in getting a no blob unit.
I'm probably going to wait until generation 2, if then. I really felt like the PW screen looked like it was glowing rather than being front lit. Even if it had been color blotch and shadow free the text just looked too washed out for my tastes. A high resolution LCD running a Kindle app looks much better to my eyes. My iPad3 does a great job as did the 1st gen Fire I had. The iPad3 is too big to comfortably hold for long durations though. I'm no fan of the Fire's carousel, but I might try the Fire HD as a dedicated reader only and leave the app use for the iPad3. Also considering the Nexus 7.
