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.

Devices
$180 Sony Reader PRS-700
$235 Kindle 2i + accessories
$165 Nook 3G
$95 Sony Reader PRS-300
$131 Sony Reader PRS-600
$100 Bookeen CyBook Opus
($170) sold Sony Reader PRS-700
($235) sold Kindle 2i & accessories
($98) sold Sony Reader PRS-300
($140) sold Sony Reader PRS-600

Accessories
$20 Lighted Cover for PRS-600
$12 Nook Industriell Easel cover
$26 JAVOedge Nook Flip cover
$15 Pink Nylon Zip case

($28) sold Lighted Cover for PRS-600
$22 eBook-Lite
$5 Case Logic PRS-300 Clutch Case for Opus


$335 Grand Total

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

Too much.

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...

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.
