Bad news for books aficionados
I've heard the rumour here first, but it is now official news and I thought I had to blog about it: the Borders chain is closing. I like Borders, maybe not as much as I do with Waterstone's, but it is still a great chain, with a wide choice and bookstores where you can actually find something else than the latest bestsellers. It is not looking well for the books market here. I just hope this will not happen to Waterstone's tomorrow. I think it might be time to make stocks of classics and rarities.
