Borders - Liquidation Starts, 399 Stores to Close

It's over. I love Borders but they did not move fast enough to embrace the Internet at at the beginning and then again during the ebook revolution.

I got there as a child to read and buy books  I go there to study.  Sometimes after dinner in nearby restaurants, we do go there for coffee.  Now, that experience will be a thing of the past.  

I guess Barnes and Noble has still around and it has been granted a life-line with the Nook.  I just hope that BN will be able to innovate and move fast enough to continue to flourish and not to repeat any of Borders' mistakes.
