How can I best use ebooks (and ebook readers) to learn German and Spanish? I live in Canada.

I'd like to read fiction and history books in German and Spanish. For fiction, I'd be looking at popular science-fiction and fantasy, and relatively easy-to-read classics, including translations (e.g.: Jane Austen).
I figure using an ebook reader would be the easiest/cheapest way. So...
Which reader? I'm in Canada, so I'm thinking either Kindle or Kobo. Influencing factor: how easy it is to look up a word in a unilingual dictionary, which is my preferred way of understanding words I don't know?
Where do I buy the books? (related to the first one, since I understand that if I go Kobo I can't buy from Amazon) I've looked at the store on the Kobo site, and there doesn't seem to be much in the way of Spanish or German. Would I be able to buy ebooks from German/Spanish/Latin-American stores?
