I did not want to hear the news I saw on Yahoo today. Borders will be closing the doors on all of their stores. The company has been looking for a buyer and set this week as the deadline to close if one was not found. No buyer, no bookstore. As a reader I will miss Borders. We had both Borders and Barnes and Noble and Borders carried a much better book selection. I think authors will also miss Borders. There will be one fewer place for readers to check out book selections and some books will not make it to the shelves. Border will be missed.
