While it wasn't a Kindle that ruined my bookstore experience, I definitely feel far less of a pull to bookstores now. Except for things like browsing cookbooks where I prefer the paper form.

Once upon a time, I'd visit any bookstore in my vicinity with great regularity, but honestly, it's been an age.

No, we do it here. Even for our prison inmates. Although not as part of the sentence...

(CNN) -- A federal court judge on Tuesday ordered Massachusetts officials to provide sex-reassignment surgery for a transsexual prison inmate, after determining that it was the only adequate treatment for the inmate's mental illness.
The state's Department of Correction said Michelle Kosilek, previously known as Robert, who is serving a life sentence without parole for murdering his wife in 1990, has a gender identity disorder.

So not an insurance problem, a criminology problem. Got it.

I don't really go to bookstores anymore. However, a few weeks ago I went to one to look for a reference book and saw a novel I liked the look of, so I looked it up and bought it on my kindle. I really don't care for paper books anymore, which is why I find little pleasure in going to book stores.

I found that before I got my first ereader I had almost got out of the habit of reading because I just wasn't finding enough books that interested me in the bigger bookstores and I was travelling so often with work that the likes of amazon were no use either, but since buying first a Sony and eventually my current kindle I have been reading so much more due to finding new mainstream authors and particularly the less well known authors with their cheap books on amazon that I'd never have found in paperback.

The bookstores ruined the bookstore experience for me, while ebooks rescued my love of reading.

With a physical book I cannot take it to the coffee shop without buying it to read a few sample pages during the drinking of my coffee....

However, I can put the sample pages onto my Kindle to browse the book, then if I like what I see, I can make a better informed decision to buy while fully lucid and caffeinated.
