Good News/Bad News

Red Room is getting some notice, which is nice... Red Room -- Facebook for Authors? And Borders is closing stores, which is not so nice... Borders Closes Chicago Flagship I worked for Borders for years. Joined up under the 'old guard' as they were generally known, when the company was like a giant group of loosely-affiliated independents. Those were the days. It's sad to see them floundering, not just because of what it means for my friends who still work there (though many of them fell during the recent round of quiet layoffs) but also for the brick & mortar bookselling as a whole.
