As Borders stores are closing gradually, it seems that the last stores are now at the final closing stage.
The Borders CEO Mike Edwards has written a letter to Borders Members bidding farewell and sharing the most asked and probably well-known answer to the question of ‘What happened?’.
If you like heading to a physical bookstore for a read and to check out books, news like this would be devastating, especially if Borders is your favourite hangout.
Due to the days and advent of the Marvellous Internet, ebooks coupled with the very popular and low priced eReaders just beat the brick-and-mortar type of bookstores out of the competition.
Although it is said that Borders bookstores out of the US is not affected, I would think it is only a matter of time.
The time is when readers buy ebooks more than in the form of hard-copies, when the eReaders costs less than a mobile phone.
At the meantime, the period between July 22 and August 5 2011 is when you might want to head out to the last Borders bookstores for discounts.
