Today after work my husband, son, and I have to go to Borders books to spend our Chrstmas gift cards. The stores close forever on 8/5, so time is running out.
I'm kind of sad today about Borders. We have always given their gift cards as Christmas gifts, and as a family we have always picked a Saturday after Christmas for book shopping and a nice steak house lunch afterward. I'll miss this store. E-readers don't really deliver the same satisfaction as holding a book in my hands.
Books seem to be going the way of newspapers and landlines. I hope B & N isn't going down this road, too.
