For some reason, I had assumed you were male. Although I suppose having been a little girl wouldn't rule that out. Although it would make it less likely, statistically...

On Topic:
E-books didn't affect my trips to the bookstore at all; they had already all but ceased due to Amazon.

My bookstore shopping was almost always characterized by repeated existential dilemmas: I'd see an interesting book and have to try and decide whether I should buy it based on the limited information available to me at the time - the cover, the back cover blurbs, the description of the book, and maybe reading a few pages. I hated having to make a decision based on such a small amount of information.

Amazon fixed all that; dozens or hundreds or thousands of reviews gave more information than I needed on a particular book...and if I ended up not liking something, I could easily find something else.

E-books are sort of like the icing on the cake - not only do I get the information I want from Amazon, but I can get the book itself faster than I could get in the car.
