What do you carry your ereaders in?

Hopefully this is the right sub-forum for this question...I'm curious what people are using for when they are traveling with their ereader(s). Whether it be travelling internationally or simply going to the coffee shop, do you use a bag, purse or your pocket? If possible share a link or image of what bag/purse you're using. I'm looking for a good purse to carry 2 devices - my Kobo and a regular 7" Android tablet. I'd like some ideas.
Bonus question - what else is in your edc?

I have a backpack and an over the shoulder bag I use to carry my Kobo Libra 2. It fits very well in both. I also carry my backup battery, one microUSB cable, and two cable adapters for my iPhone and Libra 2. The adapters adapt the microUSB cable to lightning or USB-C.

I do carry other things. The smaller bag is the one that goes with me more often.

Nice! Do you have the Libra 2 (im guessing its in a case) loose in the backpack or do you put it in the front/inner pocket? I'm seriously debating getting the libra 2 or waiting to see if they'll release anything new sometime soon.

I have a Kobo origami case on my Libra 2. It fits in the front pocket. It would also fit in the inside pocket, but that's where I put other stuff.

When you do buy a bag to carry your Reader, make sure you have your Reader (with the case) with you so you can check how well it fits.

If I only read at home, I'd be missing out on some good reading time.

I mostly read at home, but there's always the dentists office or oil change lobby where I'm wishing I had my ereader, so I try to bring my cheap old kobo everywhere I go even though I mostly don't get any reading in.

I bring my Reader when I go on vacation (for example). Yes, I do bring my Reader to some doctor appointments.

Mine goes everywhere with me. If I forget my wife thinks I am sick or getting Alzheimer's. I carry mine in my hands. I use a Surface Pro to read with. If traveling I have a leather messenger bag with strap.

I use an origami case for my Voyage but rarely carry it in a bag. Normally just in my pocket for quick and easy access. (I read while standing in lines or on the train, so digging in a bag would be a pain.)

When I do put it in the bag, it just goes next to my computer or somewhere else where it won't get bent.

I use a laptop backpack similar to this one when traveling:

I can fit my laptop, tablet, and several ereaders in it. If I'm just going somewhere like the doctor's office, I put my Libra H2O into my purse.

I curate libraries for out-and-about and poolside/beachside. I put lighter, shorter stuff on smaller readers which are more portable and keep them in my to-go bags. In the end, I don’t care what I’m reading, so long as I have something to read. It’s the digital version of the back of the cereal box.
