If you really want a dedicated reader to do long sessions on then I would highly recommend an eInk device... or something larger than the iPod. In Aus you should be able to get a Sony, CyBook or BeBook.
But, if you want something to read on the go, when you are out and also can take advantage of the other iPod touch features such as MP3 player, Address Book and other apps then the touch is OK... but I wouldn't buy it as a primary eBook reader. Of course, that's my opinion.
