Need advice on my next ereader please.

Love reading on my ereader - have a Sony Daily Edition. Only thing I don't like is the gray paper background, it really annoys me, this is nowhere near the white of a real book so I never understand the praise for e-ink. That being said, I've read a ton of books on it, its over 2 years old now so I'm looking for something else.
Kind of leaning toward a Nexus 7, but then I hear that for reading books, this will irritate my eyes... I work all day on a computer, so I wonder if I am acclimated enough to not get eyestrain...
Its pretty much between the N7 and Ipad mini... I figure I can maybe surf a little w/o dragging my 15" laptop upstairs and downstairs all the time, but this is primarily for my LARGE selection of epub books. So what I want to know is:
Can I put all of my epub books on these?
Can I read my books on the beach or in the sun easily (ie: no glare)
What is the most comfortable to hold? Maybe silly question but I'm 57 and read a lot in bed - the mini looks a little wide for hand held comfort but not sure.
Can I buy books online from pretty much anywhere and load them.
I like the whole idea of the Kindle paperwhite - if the Sony had that, I wouldn't be looking YET. But I do NOT want to be restricted to buying my content from one place.
Anybody have any opinions here? I'm not necessarily against the Nook HD either, but leaning toward Nexus.... again, primarily for reading epub books, surfing secondary. Thank you in advance!!!
