No kidding....I count not having to gave a light on as one of my favorite aspects od reading with my iPhone or iPad. It's far more relevant to me than reading outside in full sun.
I read out in my back yard all the time....but in the shade....I have no desire to sit in full sun much anyway.
The iPad also has color, is instantly responsive, and I can buy books from amazon, b&n, apple, borders, and just about anyone but Sony.
So yeah, I think lots of people will prefer the iPad over an eink reader.

I love my Kindle 2 for reading regular novels, but I got an iPad for movies, web surfing, managing my tabletop rpg game, and comics. The iPad really shines as a consumer device. It's not a computer, but rather like an appliance. Still though for just sitting and reading a novel a dedicated eInk device is king. There's no distractions, and I can just lay in my hammock enjoying the weather, my drink and a good novel.
