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.

Have had many computers, tablets laptops netbooks etc all of them obviously capable of reading but sticking to dedicated readers with the help of my wife the tally is as follows. Elonex, CoolEr, 2 Irivers, Cybook Orizon, Kobo touch, Kobo Mini, 2 Prestigio Per3464B and a Verso. All of these are e ink except for the Verso which is a LCD dedicated e reader. That is a total of 10 of which 2 have died, the CoolEr and one of the Irivers. The Kobo mini and the Prestigios are in reserve. The thing which has made it worse is that it is very difficult to get readers in South Africa (no one actually reads so no demand) so you tend to jump in when they are available. I am sure some of you have never heard of some of the brands above, I think they sell excess production in SA under a strange brand name. For example they sold a simple but smart e reader (which for once I don't have) called an A-Tek which I am sure very few have heard of.
I believe it was actually an Icarus which name is also fairly unknown.
It seems that very few can make a go of selling e readers so try to make the money from book sales of which Kindle and Kobo are particularly egregious examples. I have never used the Kobo store and the wifi has never been switched on and as for the restrictive Kindle I would never go close. When paying for e books I get them from local independent sellers.
I find this thread interesting as I am sure it is the only place unknown brands of e readers are mentioned and it is a good searchable place where the curious can start their research.
