HELP! Android tablet for use mainly a reader

Specs:
- 8" display (9" is fine but weight I think is a problem, 7" if otherwise best meets specs)
- low weight - the closer to 10 oz / 280 grams the better - I read holding it it a hand for extended periods; I know the Nook HD+ is much too heavy from trying it out
- around 250 dpi or greater
- IPS or AMOLED panel (something beyond the basic LCD display)
- Current Android OS, or close to, with record of updates
- No need to root (not a Nook HD/HD+ or Amazon anything)
- enough horsepower to make page turns 10x faster than my Nook STG

Perferences, I think:
- touch screen (no physical keyboard)
- battery life doesn't need to be great

Birthday coming up, wife ready if we can find the right device
