End of An Era

Yesterday Borders US declared bankruptcy and today Borders Pacific Rim has went into administration. With British books going into administration a few weeks ago and Waterstones having problems themselves you have to wonder what's going to happen to our book shops in the future. Here in the UK we are currently fighting to save our libraries. So where lies our future with books in general? Are we now going to have to rely on Internet sites and ereaders?

It really is sad. Many of my favourite memories as a child was spent in a library or a bookshop. I feel saddened that our children might not have that happy pleasure.

My thoughts go out to all those with their jobs on the line and keep my fingers crossed for you.
