On Borders and the Future of Bookstores

05Aug11

Paul Constant goes in-depth about his own personal history with Borders and reasons for its closing in The Stranger. It makes it pretty clear that physical bookstores as we know them probably won’t be around much longer. I don’t know if this is sad or not. It’s just changes. Turn and face the strange. I don’t know what I’ll be doing with my lunch hours, now, though. If I can’t go peruse books, I guess I’ll just be walking around aimlessly staring at people reading their Nooks and Kindles. I wonder how long it’ll take before libraries start lending e-Books. Oh wait, they are already.
