you may want to check if amazon/kobo have any published data about operating temps or try some keyword searches here.

not trying to be alarmist but screen/battery heat damage is not reversible
I also read in the hot tub with a Paperwhite 2 in a dry bag. Works perfectly fine. Computers wouoe overheat, but the ereaders I have tried stay cool (enough). It would be that if I watch YouTube on my cell in a dry bag in the hot tub I'd run into problems. But for reading it's been working very well.
