Do you have multiple ereaders? If you do, how do you use them?

Yes. Currently I have the Kindle Oasis, the Kobo Libra and the latest Nook Glowlight. I switch between them. A few books read on one, a few on another and so on.

I've had more than 3, but as the older ones were no longer in active use, I sold them or gave away.

I also have two old basic Kindles, which I kept for sentimental reasons (they were my first ereaders). I've not used them for many years, but I still charge them occasionally.

I marked 2 ,Working Normal ones. (Aura2 and a K4nt)
My EZreader (#3) has a very weak battery with no obvious replacement source

I don't count my Tablet Moon+). I did not even bother to install a reader app on my phone.

My Kobo is my current (k)EPUB reader
The K4 is for when Amazon DRM is (still) there

The Tablet is for when COLOR is needed (charts, Diagrams)

I have my old Sony T1 which is full to the brim & I got a Kobo Libra to basically replace it with more storage for my ever increasing book amount.

1. Sony PRST1 - quit using because of dictionary freeze bug and Overdrive access stopped working. Last time I checked, reader still worked in spite of having a divot in the screen where something fell on it from above while I was reading.
2. Sony PRST1 - quit using when Overdrive access stopped working. Otherwise the reader still works fine.
3. Kobo Clara - use this when at home, especially if I want to read in bed before falling asleep since it has the warm light. Overdrive library books directly on the device are limited to books where the Kobo store had the same edition, so this led to my getting:
4. Tolino Shine 2 - bought this used & cheap to use when I am away from home with no computer access. This is because it has direct Overdrive library access and I can get any available library book.

11 e-ink readers. The Oasis 2 has been my workhorse since I got it, the others mostly just stand by jealously (and get charged monthly).

Sony PRS-505 (possibly dead, have to investigate whether I botched battery replacement)
Yotaphone 2 - beach reader, will fall more out of favor in Feb. 2022 when 3G in the U.S. shuts down and it can no longer perform as a phone.

A 9th generation Oasis, which is, for now, my main reader. A 2019 Paperwhite that I travel with, and sometimes I switch to it for a week or two. I find the lighting too dim for daytime use.

I have an older Paperwhite that can still run the active content games, so I use it sometimes if I'm in bed but don't feel like reading. My mom used it for a while, but never really got good at using it. I bought it in 2013 I think, it's the second gen Paperwhite.

I use my Kindle Paperwhite daily and that's why I marked 1. I used to read a lot of books my computer and phone, but these don't qualify as ereaders for me, especially since I haven't used them for that for many years. I love my Kindle and since it's working without any issues - I don't need another one!

I read on a PW4, and will buy another PW4 next year, just for prudence's sake. I also have a Kobo Elipsa, on which I read manga.

I read on a 10-inch Fire tablet. I also have a Kindle Paperwhite that I use only as a backup if the tablet is charging. The PW was dirt cheap a few years ago so I bought it; it's not even registered. I hate the small screen size or I'd use it more often.
