It’s your last week to tear apart a Borders

As Glenn will tell you: Our Borders are broken

It must be something about this weekend’s Brooklyn Book Festival (totally free, btw), or maybe it’s just the smell of freshly sharpened school pencils in the air, but we’re all about the books this week. And in a good news/bad news sort of thing, this is the very last week to pick away at the corpse of failed hyper book slinger Borders, which is pushing everything out the door for 70-90 percent off. According to the store’s Facebook, the city’s last remaining one at Columbus Circle will close tomorrow, while a few stragglers in NJ and upstate will go by the end of the week. Columbus Circle is too far for us to find out if they have anything left but lightbulbs and chairs, but maybe there’s a good find in there. Meanwhile, some of our local bookeries are doing quite well.
