It might be long due for some, and surprising for others, but Borders are going out of business.
To me it’s sad. Although it’s the online shopping boom, with Amazon leading the way, that drove Borders out of business, it’s still sad seeing bookstores closing. It’s the end of an era, very symbolic.
Anyway, we should make the best of it. If you still have Borders stores open around your area – go and check what they have, bargains are coming in volumes. They’re closing in September.
