Just the Sony 505 for me.
A local library has several Kindle 2's, but the backlog wait was close to 2 months last time I checked. I don't care THAT much :-)

Never liked reading on a desktop PC so I won't count that.
1. 2 Sony Clié
2. 2 Palm T|X (Both the Sonys and the Palms were pretty darn fragile)
3. Kindle 1 (now my Mom's)
4. Irex Iliad (wasted potential)
5. Cybook Gen3 (my daughter uses it)
6. iPod Touch
7. Samsung Q1 tablet PC (weight, battery life are the big negatives)
8. Kindle 2
9. MacBook Pro (not a bad experience)
10. Kindle DX (love the screen size, too bad PDF implementation is primitive)
11. HTC Imagio (for reading in small chunks on the go)
12. Foxit eSlick (a huge disappointment but I haven't had the time to update the firmware so maybe it's a little bit better)
13. Entourage Edge (I really like this reader, it renders both PDF and ePub superbly with great annotation capabilities. Plus, I love having the LCD side to use for other tasks.)
Yes, I'm a gadget addict.

Kindle 1 (primarily to share books with my mom and the Amazon store)
Jetbook (inexpensive basic reader, don't like the battery life)
Sony PRS-505 (still my reader of choice)
Those are the ones I've bought. I have also played with the iPhone, Kindle 2, Nook and the various Sony readers either in the stores or belonging to friends.

After computer, which I don't really count, let me see:
Palm T|X (replaced the screen once, now it needs another)
Sony 505 (main reader though it's seen less use in the last couple of weeks while I've been playing on my new Droid.)
Moto Droid (always with me so I read on it fairly often)
I've also done a very little reading on my Nokia 6126 and my LG Neon but while the screens worked (not well but they worked) the available software made it a chore.

I've been reading a few ebooks on PC's for the last few years but as far as actual ereaders:
* Sony 505 - Red
* Kindle 2 - wanted access to all the freebies that are put out for the Kindle. It has many nice features but I prefer the Sony.
* Astak Pocket Pro - Just got caught up in the excitement when it was first released. A nice little reader but I prefer the Sony.
* Another Sony 505 - Silver - was having trouble with the first one and felt I needed a spare because it was my favorite to use and they were no longer in production.
* Sony 300 - Rose - it's just so cute
* Sony 600 - wanted to try it out in case the 505's broke and I couldn't replace them
* Another Sony 505 - Blue - I wasn't crazy about the 600 and thought I should get another spare 505
* Another Sony 505 - Red - I really didn't like the blue color and the red one just makes me happy to use because it's so beautiful.
* eBookwise 1150 - bought one for my Dad for Christmas when they were $89 and figured I needed to have one because I'm tech support for him. I really like this reader but really wish it would accept epub and SD cards. It's perfect for reading in bed but the format flexibility and book capacity is a definite drawback.
* Ipod Touch - I didn't buy this as a reader but now use Stanza on it and Calibre to load books. I love the Touch, it fits in my pocket and is really handy to use when I just have a few minutes to read. If I'd known how nice it was I'd have skipped the Kindle 2 and got a Touch initially.
* Delstar OpenBook - I wanted something that had epub to use for reading in bed. This one is going back ASAP.
So, 11 reader devices since May 2009. I realize this is ridiculous. The Delstar is being returned and I definitely plan to sell the blue Sony 505 and the Sony 600 and possibly the Kindle and Pocket Pro. Overall my favorite reader is a Sony 505. I am really starting to want an Ipad though. If Stanza will work on a bigger scale like it does for the Touch I would really want one of these for reading in bed as even with a book light I have trouble with an e-ink reader. I'm going to wait until I read some good reviews on this site though, no matter how cool it is.

My first cellphone. Got some reading done but screen was really to small for comfortable reading.
Sony PRS 600 which is my favorite
And an attempt to use my television as a large screen book reader somewhere along the line. Really did not work out. fonts came out to big, blocky, and chunky to read for extended periods of time.

How many readers
I've started with Palm Pilots/Sony Clies in ca. 1997:
3 x Palm Pilot, 2 x Sony Clie.
Then I switched to Pocket PCs:
2 x Compaq, 3 x HP.
Then I've got BlackBerrys:
4 x BlackBerry.
In 2007, I switched to dedicated readers:
I've got 15 so far.
Plus: I've had 9 private Notebooks since 1996 and 4 private Desktop PCs.
And since 2008 1 x iMac and 1 x Mac mini.
So, in total it's about 50 gadgets, capable of reading eBooks since 1995.
EDIT: Totally forgot about iPone and iPod touch. And 5 Sony PSPs and 3 Nintendo DS.
