Many thousands of pounds over the years, but it's my hobby, and for me it's been worth every penny.

A Kindle at $359 and a couple of iPads with 3G and 64GB.
I can read on my cell phones, but that's not why I got 'em

In addition to an avid reader, I'm a gadget freak, so I doubt I'm "normal," although hanging at MR makes me feel more normal Since I don't have the deep pockets required to support my obsessive habits, I bought all my devices on eBay, and sold the ones I decided against. The ones in BLUE are what I kept for now.

Slightly more than I thought, but I wasn't counting accessories in my head.
And that doesn't count the PRS-650 and/or PRS-950 I'm going to buy and compare to the Nook and Opus. I'd like one device, but I can't decide on one device

About 700€ = 910 $ for PRS-505 and PRS-900 (import to europe).
Currently planning to buy the new PRS-950 and PocketBook 902/903.

$149 for Nook Wi-Fi and $36.50 for a JAVOEdge case. I also got a booklight for cheap that works clipped to my case, but not the nook itself, for $2.50. :]
So... $188, shipping included.
But I'm a total beginner, and I'm sure there will be more. A gelaskin is looking miiiighty pretty!... but I'll put that off for quite a while yet.

Compaq/HP iPaq $700 (<-yes that's really the first ereader for me as I bought it to read on the road. It majorly sucked, but there were no better mobile alternatives )
PRS500 $500-$600 (<- paid the big prize for it. To be sent over by fedex and have to pay importtaxes)
PRS505 $300 (<-went to the us and bought it personally)
iPad 64GB Wifi $700,- (<-shipped it directly from america. And the best reader I've ever bought)
all in all... too much...

1st Jetbook 160$
4 months later Jetbook for the wife 140$
2 Jetbooks for Father and Father in law 120$ each or 240$.
Jetbook Light for myself 100$ (my Jetbook was then handed down to daughter)
2 Jetbook Lights when they were on sale at 70$. One is a Christmas present for my wifes boss. The other is a backup just in case my wife or I should have one go down on us.
Easily well over 700$ but a lot of that was not for me.
