The Borders store I worked in for 8 years, closed for the last time, yesterday at 5 pm. Coincidentally, I had dinner with 3 women who used to work with me there. It was lovely to talk about the good times we had there, in the old days before the business went South.
One of them quipped that we were now 'Booksellers without Borders'. I've been smiling about that all day.
The people I worked with there were such an interesting group of people. I'm glad they are mostly still around and I can see them from time to time.
