While you are saving for that tablet I suggest that you check of the new crop of 8" tablets that run the full Windows 8.1, not the limited RT version. The Dell Venue 8 Pro ("pro"=Win8.1, the older Venue 8 w/o "Pro" runs Android)" now sells for $249USD (32gb model) on Dell's site and has been ~$198USD on Amazon the past few days. There are competing models from Acer, ASUS, and Lenovo at similar prices.

The screens on these are not significantly larger than the common 7" Android tablets but with the full version of Windows they will run Scrivener, Calibre, etc. Add a Bluetooth keyboard and they become somewhat netbook-like or use the onscreen keyboard for the "true tablet experience". Whatever suits your fancy.
