Image via WikipediaAt one time Borders was probably one of my favorite bookstores. The music selection was better than just about every other big box retailer around. I have a taste that sometimes runs to lesser known acts and at Borders I could find most of them. And the prices were reasonable, a lot less than at other places like Barnes & Noble. The Borders here is across the lake in Metairie so it's not someplace I go to every week. I would usually hit them up at least once a month and I'd never walk out with some new books or music. At the magazine rack at Borders I would get my new copy of Backstreets whenever it came out. Their section on books on music and musicians is better than B & N, I've got quite a few books about different musicians there.
But sometime in the last year things started to change. They moved their music selection around, making it smaller. And the prices went up. I started having trouble finding a lot of what I wanted there. I started making that trip across the lake less often, at least to go to Borders.
Are they getting ready to go out of business? Go here and read about it. Even though they're not my favorite book store anymore I'd hate to see them go under.
