Today was the last day I spent my afternoon at a Borders. I've spent many hours of my life at this store, particularly during my college days when I was stuck on campus with gaps between my schedules. When I was not purchasing books, I was sitting at the cafe studying and eating either a cream cheese pretzel, a slice of lemon loaf cake, or a blueberry scone with a cup of hot or iced chai latte (depending on the season). Very fond memories I will have of this store and I will miss it dearly. Goodbye Borders, Barnes and Noble will never be able to replace you completely with your non-snotty workers and your weekly coupons without an annual $25 membership fee. Just like I mourned the loss of Papyrus near campus, I will mourn the loss of you even more. You were my bookstore version of Target.
My last Borders purchase
As a final reminder,Don't forget to sign up for my giveaways here and here. They both end tomorrow, August 5th.
