What are your thoughts on the closing of so many Borders Bookstores?
Books Without Borders
Borders is bankrupt. You can read the facts as reported by the Wall Street Journal here.
People are crawling out of the woodwork with opinions. I’m not one of them. I’m not sure what to think.
A recent article in the New York Daily News berated the publishing world for flooding the market, much the way developers flooded Florida and Arizona and California (please, God, not Montana.) Its author believes that Border’s bankruptcy and massive store shutdown is a result of the dummying down of books and America’s ultimate good taste. Low-road books, massively hyped and rushed to the market; undeserving authors garnering ridiculous advances for fluff. I’m not sure if it’s important to agree or disagree.
