It’s the final week of Border’s book store. This is very sad for me for two reasons.
A) Borders is/was the only book store by my house!
B) I used to go in Borders and pretend that my future book (which I do plan on writing after college) was featured there and people would be crowded around it, buying the copies like hot cakes. (When I told my sister this reason, she replied sympathetically, “Oh! That’s depressing!”)
With that said, I made sure that I went to my closing local Borders and stocked up on the cheap books. I recommend everyone does the same. Everything is 70-90% off and they’re selling the ENTIRE store. The light fixtures, the bar area, the book and magazine racks, the shelves, the couches and chairs and tables. EVERYTHING is going!
I walked out of there with 5 books – two on Jane Goodall, one on a lion, one on journalism and one on writing. For all 5 books, I spent $30.00 and on the bottom of my receipt it stated in bold letters: YOU HAVE SAVED $55.00 TODAY!
It’s definitely worth it and if not to just buy cheap books then to say goodbye to Borders.
