Borders, Bankrupt? Meh.

Borders (in the States) are filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy

Personally I'm not sure how it'll affect international stores, especially since Berjaya Group owns the name here, last I checked.

Borders is also not a place I shop for books - browse and look around certainly when I'm uber bored, but I know I can get better prices for the books I want someplace else or down the road. I think the last book I bought at a Borders store was Body 2 Body: A Malaysian Queer Anthology simply because it wasn't available anywhere else (and wasn't going to be reprinted).
