If you want something in time for your birthday then the Astak EZ Reader Pocket Pro (Hanlin V5) is a safe choice. This is a solid basic reader, and its small size is a plus when traveling. You could later on get a 6" or even 8" or 9" device with more capabilities (WiFi, touch screen, dictionary). The Onyx Boox 60 is the first of these devices, and I don't know if anything will be significantly better by next Christmas but there will certainly be many more choices and probably lower prices. The only real downside of the Onyx is the Wacom touch screen which requires a stylus. Always get a cover with an EInk device to protect the screen, the EZ Reader Pocket Pro comes with one.
