I Miss Borders

I enjoy going to Barnes and Noble. I also enjoy going to my neighborhood independent bookstores.

However, I miss going to Borders.

I don’t remember when I began going to Borders, but I had some good times there. Their coffee was solid. (Not as good as Starbucks. Still good nonetheless)

More than anything I enjoyed the atmosphere. The books I wanted to read were easy to find and I was always close to a location.

I did a lot of writing, reading, and coffee drinking there.

Then just like that they were gone. I thought there was a light at the end of the tunnel when I heard whispers of a merger. Sadly that opportunity never materialized into anything serious.

Now all I have are the memories.
