Borders is officially done (http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/breaking/chi-lacking-bidders-borders-to-liquidate-20110718,0,2551112.story) and won't come out of bankruptcy. If you have any gift cards laying around, use them to buy a $17 cd or a $29 dvd before it's too late.

I can't say I'm terribly sad about this. I've had very, very poor experiences with Borders on the whole. I will continue to support my small, independent local bookseller.

Back in march I went to one with a going out of business sale. Everything was 30-80% off and of the decent stuff that remained, it was still no cheaper than amazon.

Good riddance.
