Do you have an e-reader family?

Everyone in my family has an e-reader (enabled by e-reader obsessed yours truly). My 10 year old son reads on my old Nook Color, my 11 year old daughter reads on a Nook Glowlight, my hubby (a traditionalist), is still sticking with is PRS-505 (although I have a 650 ready for him whenever it dies, or he finally decides to upgrade). I just got myself a Glowlight and before that was doing most of my reading on a Nook Tablet. My previous go-to was the PRS-350, but I am so loving these lit screens, I don't think I could ever go back.

So what about you? Do you have a whole family of e-readers?

Yeah, I didn't even add extended family. That would also include:

- Mom: Kindle 3
- Mother-in-law: Kindle 3
- Sister: Nook Touch

I read mainly on my Nook ST and my Kindle4. I don't use my iPad for reading.
My husband reads on his iPad.
My older daughter reads on her Nook Tablet.

As for extended family:
Sister and mother both have multiple e-readers
Dad has a Nook but likes paper books more I think
Brother - ? Not sure but I think he uses paper books.
Mother-in-law: Kindle, but she's new to it
Sister-in-law: Kindle
Father-in-law: I think paper books

I have a K3, my wife has a Kindle Fire. I use my K3 mostly for reading, and play a few games on it. My wife uses her Fire mostly for games, with some reading. My daughter doesn't uses my wife's Fire a little, for a few simple games, and I read to her from the Kindle each night.

My sister has a K2 and a rooted Nook, my nephew has a Kindle Fire.

Whole family of ereaders here!

Me - Kobo Touch & Vox
DH - Kobo Touch
DD #1 (10 yrs old) - Kobo Mini (was using a Kobo Wireless until last week)
DD #2 (10 yrs old) - Kobo Mini (was using a Kobo Wireless until last week)

The girls do still read paper books. They're really enjoying the upgrade to the Mini, though, which is also a touch screen device.

My extended family:
Brother - Sony T1
Sister #1 - Sony T1
Sister #2 - Kobo Glo (I'm jealous. Had convinced myself I didn't need to upgrade until I saw her Glo in person.)
Nephew - Sony T1

My wife and I have Nook Colors.
My son reads on his Desktop, Laptop and or phone.
I plan on getting My mother a Nook Tablet for Christmas. She has Macular Degeneration and I think she will like the large fonts available. Right now she reads using a Video Eye System at home. If she is out and needs to read a menu she carries a magnifying glass.

I have a few and my oldest son has one. I suspect my husband reads on his phone, but I'm not sure; otherwise, he doesn't have any other electronic readers.

My daughter wants one, but she's only five years old and I'd like to be older before she gets one (her brother was eight when he got his). She does have a V-tech V.reader and a LeapFrog Tag Reader, if those count. Her three year old brother has a StoryReader and a Tag Reader of his own.

I don't know anybody that reads as a hobby, except for my kids.

Yep!

My daughter reads on my old Nook (she also has tons of paper books), my boyfriend reads on his nook color, and I read on my Nook STR (as well as paper books).
My father and mother read on their Kindle Fires. I still need to convert my sister. She is resisting ereaders.

I have a Kindle Keyboard, my daughter has a Kindle 2. My wife isn't much of a reader so it is doubtful she will ever have one.

Nope, only my sister. My husband has no interest at all, I can't see him ever wanting one. My daughter has not expressed an interest as yet. She loves pbooks, which I think is wonderful and I want to continue to support that. I prefer that she reads pbooks right now (she is 7). I imagine at some point she will want an ereader.

Wife inherited my Kindle Keyboard, I have a paperwhite, Mom has a Toshiba fondleslab, and Mom's man-friend-person has a Nook and now a Samsung fondleslab.

It's kinda like the electronic Brady Bunch, of sorts.
