I already bring my kindle and iphone to work. I'm considering bringing an iliad as well, and I'm worried about theft... What can I do?

I already bring my kindle and iphone to work and leave them in my lunch box. I'm not really worried too much about them being stolen because only my co workers see that I bring them at all (I work at mills/other large industrial sites, so there are always lots of people who could be around anywhere). I'm about to buy an irex iliad, so that I have a device for reading math, physics, and whatnot, since my books on those are in pdf and would be mangled to death on my kindle. But, while I wasn't worried when it was just my kindle/iphone, I realize that as I add more gadgets, it's more likely people will notice and talk about it, and also a much higher cost if someone does walk off with my lunchbox. I'm just curious what everyone thinks about how likely this is, or rather how much more likely it is if I add an iliad in, and also what I might do to prevent it? Aside from just not bringing them: they are my means to study/read on breaks, and maintain my sanity. That's a must.
