This is sad:
Borders Group may file for bankruptcy reorganization as early as Monday or Tuesday, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
The No. 2 traditional bookstore in the U.S. also plans to close about 200 of its 674 stores and cut thousands of jobs, the newspaper reported, citing sources it did not name.Is it a good thing for bookstores to disappear and go away? Does everything have to be on an electronic media device now?
I like media readers and devices like that. I just wish there was a way to keep everything as it was. That's wishful thinking, perhaps, and change is ever present, but sometimes a book is a book and a flat screen that glows is a poor substitute.
