    The Kindle Fire will read pdfs, as well as e-books.  You copy pdfs to it after you connect to it via USB cable.

    Any one of the cheap ($100.00 or less) Android tablets will do the trick, though look for a capacitive screen rather than a resistive screen.  I found a 7 inch tablet just fine for reading and they have the added advantage of being able to check email and surf the web (though web surfing on a 7 inch tablet is not great), and they also let you watch movies.
