Certainly agree with you. Both my wife and I have iPads and ereaders. My wife uses her iPad2 primarily for playing games (hidden object, match 3 etc) but when she reads, she uses her Kindle.
My iPad2 is used for internet use, hobby reference/game PDF's and comics. I have and will never read an ebook on it. I find the iPad2 too heavy for sustained reading sessions and LCD screens and I do not have a very good long term relationship.
Two family members were gifted ereaders last Christmas (2012), a Kindle and a PRS-T2. I doubt that would have been uncommon with other families either.
