Borders R.I.P.

After struggling for some time, it seems that Borders, the nation’s second-largest “brick and mortar” book reseller, has officially called it quits. Just ran across the company’s official liquidation announcement on The Wall Street Journal website here. Whether or not you ever shopped at their stores, it’s a sobering moment for book fans everywhere. Will be interesting to see what the long-term ramifications might be on the overall industry.
