The original firmware will be fine for what you will use your aPad for (so the one that it comes with or 0530). I am using the stock firmware that my slate arrived with and have not seen a reason to flash it yet - and I use it for the same things that you want to use it for. Plenty of ebook reader applications on the market, the pre-installed Chrome is all you need for browsing (get Skyfire from market if you want an alternative) and there are a lot of video players for Android now. Check the Applications forum for some more discussion on which apps to use.
