Seriously, if you really enjoy reading enough to consider shelling out serious money on a dedicated reading device then I would expect you would have read enough to not be stumped by words often enough to justify needing a dictionary by your side.
Keep in mind that English isn't the native language for all e-reader users. In my experience, reading books is one of the more pleasant ways of learning a new language. I'd love to have a reader in which I could substitute German-English, French-English, or Spanish-English dictionaries to improve my knowledge of those languages.
