Yesterday, Borders closed the last of its stores.
I couldn't help but think of the movie "You've Got Mail," where the big box store is taking over all of the little independent booksellers. Borders was that big box store.
It was so sad to see the place wiped out.
After making two or more, I honestly can't remember, trips to Borders, I came away with the following goodies for really great prices.
First up, I had never heard of Taste of Home and I was really impressed with this cookbook/magazine.Nothing like a book about Paris, a map of Paris and some cookbooks for a beverage (or 2).Every year for Christmas, I give my dad a calendar of Italy so why not get it early at 70% off!Something to give me some ideas for future projects (provided I win Lotto).And how about some really interesting reads.Have you read any of these books?
Well Borders, so sad to see you go but thank you for the great reads!
