I didn't know that Borders (one of my favorite bookstores in the world) is calling it quits. I read from Yahoo Finance that the 40-year old bookseller has filed bankruptcy last February. It will push through its liquidation plan up to September.
I am wondering if the Borders branches here in Dubai will also be affected since they are franchise of the beleaguered bookstore. I hope not because I love hanging out in that place. I really enjoy sitting in one of their couches and just reading stuff. I will be really sad if it closes down for good.
