Without a doubt. I believe a much bigger percentage of heavy readers own dedicated readers than the population at large but that is not surprising, we are after all a self-selected group.
I'm on my 3rd ereader (Nook, Nook Touch and now Kobo Glo) and if a new device comes out with a marked improvement (like the Glo was, at least for me) then I'll buy it.
I'm not rich but I read regularly (probably 12-13 hours a week minimum) and my reading is immersive so if I stare at a screen for a long time then I'd rather have the best I can get for my eyes.
As for the death of ereaders, I think reports of their death are greatly exaggerated.
