Good question. My first e-reader was a Sony PRS 650, then I got a Kobo Vox last year. The Sony hasn't been used much since then, but it still came in handy when we had a very lengthy power outage last summer and I wanted good battery life.

DH won an iPad2 last summer and very kindly handed it to me. I promptly installed reader apps and I found myself doing everything with the iPad that I used to do with the Vox. I ended up only using the Vox so I could read while I was using our elliptical trainer. I did take the Vox on day trips because we have a 110 plug-in in our vehicle, but I eventually found I ended up taking the iPad instead. Increasingly, syncing books on the Kobo app between the 2 devices just wasn't working properly, although it worked wonderfully if I was reading a Kindle book. The Sony ended up by the wayside because it doesn't have wifi.

We're away from home right now and although I brought all 3 reading devices, I haven't even powered up the Sony and the Vox since we left. I'm thinking my next gadget will be an iPad mini, which I think will be my next 'reader'. The iPad is wonderful, but for some things it's kind of big.

So...2 readers and one device I use as a reader.
