Borders is on its way out? Leaving us with the Goliath of mediocrity that is Barnes & Noble? I don't like this one bit.

I would say that I hadn't noticed any real significant difference in titles carried. I think the difference is atmospheric.

On a side note: a local Borders got destroyed by a water main break. A friend of mine who works there said he went dumpster diving afterwards and cleaned up on water damaged books.

Cap'n--

Maybe it's just where I live, but here there's a pronounced difference in selection. Borders rules!

My local Borders put in a large kiddie section and went downhill from there....

The closest Borders here is 25 miles away and is the only place that sells Asimov's and Analog Science-Fiction.

Bummer.

I don't mind change, but us old folks need to catch our breath between acts.

Gee, I thought that was Microsoft.
