It's been a long while coming and last week it finally happened. Borders / Angus&Robertson went belly up, probably taking with them the hopes of many a publisher for payments due... and devastating for their employees who are always the ones to bear the brunt. The internet is abuzz with the whys and the hows and the what nexts, but it's virtually impossible to feel sorry for the bookchain heavy weights who've apparently mismanaged their way into this mess.
Go you little independent bookstores and second hand sellers - the bedrock of the literary trade.Go you good things!
