Looking for a tablet recommendation, there are so many out there I can't figure out what I need.

The primary thing I want to do with a tablet would be to read files I have stored via Scrapbook, a Firefox extension. Word files and pdfs would be important too. I don't need constant internet access, so anything requiring a mobile plan is out. Wifi would be good. If I could attach it to a keyboard as needed that would be stellar as well.
My question is: what is the cheapest available tablet that is still of good quality that would allow me to do what I want? I'm not willing to pay extra for the Ipad's big name when something less fancy will meet my needs.
I'd prefer non-hackable options, as I don't know that I'd feel confident implementing the new ROM.
I've looked at previous threads but the market is changing so fast I thought it might be worth asking again
