Goodbye Borders


Administration notice

Administration notice

I cannot let the passing of Borders go without comment. I enjoy books and book shops and the news that Borders had gone into administration was a very sad indeed. The Borders book shop I go to was a wonderful place to browse for books. Comfy chairs amidst the books and the ever-present smell of coffee from the Starbucks bar gave the place a great feeling. I am sorry for the staff, who were always both helpful and knowledgeable.

Amazon will get the blame, but it’s our choice in the end. If you’re like me and enjoy book shops as well as books then we had better make use of them before it’s too late!

Another high street name that I shall miss...

Goodbye Borders… gone but not forgotten.
