No. Use your iPad 4. What isn't it doing now for you that you expect the iPad 5 to do? iOS 7 would bring them to the same playing field software wise and I can't see the CPU being too much more powerful. MAYBE a quad core but apps are just starting to saturate dual core so the gains would be minimal currently. The only other thing outside of the obvious design change is a ram update to 2gb which I think is a no brainer.

Unless you see the iPad as a status symbol and feel the need to upgrade every generation, stick with what you have now until it no longer does what you need to do. I happen to be blessed enough to be able to buy the latest and greatest every once and a while but I don't really want to be wasteful either so I buy the latest and use it for a couple years. Upgrades will mean more then and disappointment will also be less.

No you can't because iPad 5 is not out yet. Tim Cook wants you to keep it.
That is OK to make fun of my poor english grammars just because you are bullying deaf people.

The ipad 5 will be a brand new design, thinner, smaller with the same screen size, lighter, a bit faster and look better. It will probably have stereo speakers by the looks of it as well. And possibly something else stonkingly good.

You're right, it won't be revolutionary, but it will be a much bigger update than the 3 to 4.

AS for the OP... Give it to a close friend or family member. It will make you feel much better inside.

Every computer or Apple device I've had since my Quicksilver Desktop Mac has been recycled that way. Most recent was my imac 24inch that went to my wife's parents. They took us out for dinner after I set it all up for them.

I'm thinking of maybe selling my iPad 3 as well, but I'm not sure. I'm thinking the iPad mini will be obsolete sooner rather than later because of non-retina and crappy RAM.
I have a Motorola Xoom 4G and to be honest it does everything I need and the 4G LTE is a bonus. Like the iPhone the iPad leaves me wanting more and that more I can only get from open source android. I'm thinking either sell the iPad or donate it to the wife.
