E-Reader time: beach, bath, page lag and sync.

There are tons of out of copyright books I'd like to read, e-book readers have got a lot cheaper, so I'm considering buying one. I've got a few questions though:
1. Has technology improved enough so that the annoying page turn blanking has gone away? If not, do you get used to it, or is it distracting?
2. Are there any e-readers you can read on the beach or in the bath? I'm not looking for a ziplock bag, I mean something that will work as it is.
3. calibre seems good for syncing. Does anyone here use it? How clever is it? Can I use calibre-server to continue reading a book on my android when I don't have my e-reader with me?
Any general advice? I'm not really interested in a keyboard. Something light with a big screen. Maybe a backlight (if one exists).
