Kindle 3, Kindle 4 silver, Kindle 4 black, Kindle Touch, Kindle PW 2, Nook STR, Kobo Glo, and Kobo Aura HD.
Hmmm. Let's add them up, shall we?

Kindle 3: 241g
Kindle 4: 170g (x2)
Kindle Touch: 213g
Kindle PW2: 206g
Nook STR: 212g
Kobo Glo: 185g
Kobo Aura HD: 240g

Total: 1637g, or 1.637kg

Somewhat less than "a ton"

There's not enough room in my Profile.

I have a number of retired units in the United States that I should probably sell, like an ancient Sony 505.

And something like three Rocket ebook readers - or else they were the GEB 1100?

I have 6 eink ereaders in my house. My son has a Sony T2. My husband has a Bebook Mini and a Kobo Glo, he only uses the Glo now because he likes the built in light and the fact that I installed Coolreader for him so he can change pages by tapping exactly where he wants to. I have an original Cybook which is only a backup now as the software is very slow, a Sony T1 with FBReader installed, and Kobo Glo with Coolreader installed. I use the Glo most of the time now because my husband likes that the back light is not as bright as my booklight was. The Sony is a great backup though and since I got it was refurbished and on sale I do not mind not using it all the time.

I think I just love technology and the ereaders are getting better and better all the time. Maybe what I need to do is create a tech review website so that I can try out these great toys without having to buy each one.

I have five e-readers, all in perfect shape (Sony PRS-505, Kindle Keyboard, three Sony PRS-350s). I've been on a self-imposed "no buy" shopping hiatus for the last two years, in order to space out my e-reader purchases more prudently. And it's sort of a reinforcement-learning punishment, to force me to better learn these lessons:
  • technology improves. The great device you see now is not the end-all and be-all. (Corollary: seldom should you buy spares.)
  • technology prices deflate. That device that is priced at half off what it was yesterday is not necessarily a must-buy.
