Borders Bookstores Close

I knew they were looking at bankruptcy. But, they came out with their own ereader and bankruptcy seemed unlikely to me. However, looks like they are going to lay off 10,000 people and close 400 stores.

Well, I guess all the mom and pop shops can rejoice now, this should alleviate some pressure from them when it comes to small shops vs. big corporations.

But four hundred stores, that's a big load of them. I knew a girl who worked at borders and said it's an ok job but the pay was pretty low. That leaves what, Barnes and Nobles as the biggest book store chain in the US?

Both Borders and Barnes & Nobles have close in my area. Only place now with a good selection of 'real' books is the public library. I wonder when it will fold?
