View Poll Results: Do you carry your (eInk or LCD) eReader everywhere?
Yes, it's my security blanket. I have bought purses/jackets/clothing around my need to carry it at all times. 87 32.58%
Yes. Well, most of the time. I'm not as obsessive as the people in Option 1. 89 33.33%
About 50/50 for me. The people in Option 1 and 2 are pretty extreme. I like pina coladas. 39 14.61%
Not really. I didn't vote in Option 3 because I thought it sounded kind of sanctimonious. 34 12.73%
No, I keep my eReader at home, often in a locked safe. If I don't take the wrapper off, it will accrue in value. 9 3.37%
Dear madam, these poll options are dreadful, and additionally I have a kipper in my ear. 19 7.12%
Multiple Choice Poll. Voters: 267. You may not vote on this poll

Before my ereader, I always carried a book with me. There may be a chance to get a few minutes to read in the most unexpected places.

Not everywhere, but when I anticipate spending significant time Outside, then my Kindle, the A5-sized hard plastic case I keep it in, and an off-brand ziplock baggie go with me, if only because I don't want to spend umpteen hours on public transit with nothing to read (or bring a paperback and have it start to rain).

But room to room at home, no.

You keep leaving out the choice for The blue one next to the fish. It's a MR tradition that polls should have that as a choice.

I carry it with me if I suspect I'll have a few extra minutes waiting time. Otherwise I keep books on my phone that I can read if I get caught out with nothing to do.

I bring it with me almost everywhere. I read on breaks & lunch at work, I read in the car while the hubby is driving, doctor appointments, anywhere I may get stuck waiting. It relaxes me & it's a good way to spend some time. I can't bring my crochet everywhere so I bring my reader.

I usually carry my ereader in my purse. I bought one around the time I first got my ereader that just so happened to be the perfect size (really, it was an accident, I swear. I would never buy a purse based around carrying my ereader. Really.) If I have to use a smaller purse for whatever reason, I make sure to sync whatever book I'm reading with the appropriate app on my iphone so I can having something to read just in case.

I've voted the option 1 but now, I'm thinking that, if I have to use a mini-purse for a party, then I can't take it with me but... well, I don't go to that places anyway

Had to vote other because my phone is my ereader and therefore my ereader is always with me, but MR tends to insist that ereader == eink. I almost never carry my eink reader with me.
