Borders vs. Amazon (Amazon ftw).
Borders recently filed for bankruptcy. But before they did, this Chicago store had a message for those of you who walk into bookstores, scan a book’s barcode, then buy it for less on Amazon.
The sign is a prank, of course, as are the messed up dates, according to an employee.
I talked with a good friend of mine in Boulder, recently, who founded and still runs one of the leading independent bookstores in the country. He said his bookshop, The Boulder Bookstore, would be gone within five years. If you care, click here for action. If you don’t, keep shopping at Amazon: our money supports whatever kind of world we give it to.
All that soapbox talking said, can’t remember the last time I read a book: now I read online, and netflix at night. The times they are a’changin’.
