Today everything at Borders is 90% off! It’s bittersweet and quite a sign of the times as eBooks and eReaders are taking over. If it’s not electronic, it probably won’t make it in this age. I found a couple books for the kids, random newspapers, books to donate, paid my $5 and bid my regards.
Borders was my kids playground in this cement jungle called Boston. During cold, snowed in winters we somehow found a way to get to Borders. While we sampled their coffee, the kids read all the books they wanted and played with the stuffed animal puppets (aren’t those the coolest!). If you have a Borders near you, I recommend stopping by. Even if you don’t find something you like, pick some cheap books and keep for gifts later or better yet, donate them to your local library!
I would suggest going ASAP though, ours looked like this a couple hours ago:
However, Sarah Palin fans will be happy :
How do you feel about Borders closing? Do you think this is the beginning of the end for brick and mortar bookstores?
