My son has an iPad, and I have checked it out when he comes to visit.  I may venture in that direction, but the iMac and a comfortable chair work fine for now.

If you wanted to use an iPad, there are plenty of cases which will act as 
stands as well, e.g.


I have the cheap one at no 6, although I’ve also bought a keyboard cover for 
occasional use.

Living alone most of the time, I have made good use of our local library for several 
years.  When I renewed my library card several years ago, I was given a PIN Number which 
allows me to borrow books from the on-line library, but I never expected to use it. Now, 
with Social Distancing and most public facilities closed, I find the system to be a real 
blessing.  I am reading a book each day, using "Libby" on my iMac.  I've 
considered an iPad, but that has to be held whereas the iMac is self-supporting.

Here is the view, as I read mysteries that were previously unavailable to me.
