My Kindle Touch is my main reader, but I've found reading on my Nexus 7 and my phone to be quite acceptable with the brightness turned down. While I don't use my tablets as readers all the time I know at least a dozen people who use them for that purpose all the time and are quite happy.

As far as the earlier statement that ebooks don't make good gifts (forgot to quote it,) that is certainly a matter of opinion. I think they make fantastic gifts and it's something I love to receive. Other than some elderly people, most folks these days understand and appreciate virtual goods.
Agreed. I was quite happy to get some eBooks as gifts this year.
