Wordless Wednesday - Borders







I don't know about you, but we're rather sad about the demise of the Borders chain. The closing of our local Borders means one less place where we can go and browse for books as a family. We loved the atmosphere and, as a holder of a Borders membership card, I'm going to miss their spectacular deals. Sure, big-box book retailers have their faults but the closing of the Borders stores is a real loss for readers.

It is sad. We have an independent bookstore near us that I LOVE and I am always worried that it will close.

I felt like crying when I went in there. I posted about it here:

It is so sad. I loved going to Borders when I wanted a book and always getting a starbucks while I was there.

We're going to miss Borders, too! Ours is/was an 85 mile drive, but we stopped often when we were doing other shopping. We'll be left with a small independent store for new books and a couple of used book stores. We'll be shopping the internet for our books a whole lot more now...
