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.
