Borders bankruptcy

I have to admit that, though I've been a good Borders customer, "good" for me meant "bought a lot of books and DVDs and music there but only with 33% off or more coupons." If I'm a typical customer, I can't say Borders going bankrupt is a big surprise.

Sadly, the Lawrence, KS, store is one of the 30% of all Borders stores that's closing. Of course I just paid for a membership upgrade to get the extra 10% discounts. *sigh*

I feel sorry for all the book-loving people who are about to lose their jobs, not just here in Lawrence but everywhere. And I feel sorry for the customers who are losing yet another way to get book recommendations.

Perhaps this will make more room for independent bookstores. Let's hope!
