“We had worked very hard for a different outcome. The fact is that Borders has been facing headwinds for quite some time, including a rapidly changing book industry, the e-reader revolution and a turbulent economy. We put up a great fight, but regrettably, in the end, we weren’t able to overcome these external forces.”
Behold a passage from the letter I received from Borders today. It scares me to death as I feel that some day books may be lost to us forever. Technology is not always a good thing. Not when people won’t support the turn of a page, nor the scent of the paper.
