I'm worried--Borders bookstores may be in trouble.

From what I've read on various websites, such as here, it seems Borders may be in even more financial trouble than I previously thought. I mean, Diamond Comics has halted all shipments of goods until they get paid money they are owed? Borders is now as bad as a parent who owns alimony and won't pay up? Not good.

No wonder I always get those coupons for 33% and sometimes even 40% or during the holidays 50%! I signed up for Borders Plus just two months ago to get even more discounts, and while it is good for the year I'm now worried Borders may not last that long unless someone buys them out or their luck changes.

I prefer Borders over Barnes and Noble, because I like the coupons, and how you can search the computer yourself, you don't have to get an employee to help you. I hope everything works out okay, but I'm worried about Borders, and how this can affect the comic industry in regards to their graphic novels.


  1. I absolutely loved Borders and was distraught when it folded. (I'm in Glasgow, Scotland.) Hope it doesn't happen over there, but it's not looking good, is it? Love your blog, by the way - keep ranting!

  2. Things are looking bleak. Thanks for the kind words, too!
