I am a student in Canada - what ereader is right for me?

So after moving three times in the past year and lugging all my books around in boxes, I want to buy an ereader. But, I don't know which one is right for me. My preferences as follows:
1) Wide availability of books, and easy purchasing access (in Canada).
2) Price - I do expect to use this a lot and so see the value of investing in a good one, but if there is a good AND cheaper one...perfection.
3) I want to be able to make notes on things easily.
4) PDF capability.
I don't care about: wireless internet access/3G anything and it doesn't have to be exceptionally tiny or large.
I plan to use it to buy a) novels b) nonfiction books and c) textbooks if possible. Is (c) possible? Given all my criteria, what is my best bet out of the Nook, Kindle, Sony, Kobo, etc., options?
I have seen the prior questions, and while they were helpful in determining what I wanted in an ereader, they were not so helpful in figuring out which I want.
Caveat: Canada! Apparently we can purchase the Nook online, though.
