However, did anyone else notice that they always had the latest right-wing autobiography just as you entered the door? I rarely spent money in Border's unless I received a 40% off coupon by email. It was a good place to browse books and then buy them online. There is something special about being able to hang out and browse in bookstores and record/CD shops. It is a pity that future generations won't have this opportunity.

My girlfriend and I, being perpetually broke college grads in this tough economy, like to go out and do free/cheap stuff in town as much as possible. One of our go-to outings is to head to a bookstore for some recreational reading, but the Borders employees love to give us a hard time. We've been scolded for sitting on the floor instead of the stools, blocking access to the books, taking off our sandals, and yes, recently, for bringing in outside food. We always clean up after ourselves, we're quiet, we find corners of the store where customers are unlikely to go, and we never bother anyone, which is more than I can say for half their customers, particularly high schoolers. They do everything in their power to make our visits to their store as unpleasant as possible, compounded by the fact that their bathrooms are always disgusting.<br> + <br> + Listen, I know it's a bookstore and not a library. But a store should never make you feel unwelcome when you're minding your own business. Don't they have bigger things to worry about? If I find a book that I legitimately like, I'm GOING to buy it. Maybe I'd do so more often if their prices weren't ridiculously high.<br> + <br> + I'm sticking to Avid Reader from now on. --["Users/AdamV"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bordershttp://daviswiki.org/Borders2011-02-16 13:30:40IDoNotExist(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Borders<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 35: </td> <td> Line 35: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Borders is [http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2011/02/11/borders-prepares-to-file-for-bankruptcy/ reported] <span>to be filing</span> for bankruptcy <span>during the week of</span> February 1<span>3</span>th, 2011.

However, the WiFi connections at Borders are fraught with problems. You may experience the need to reauthenticate several times per minute. Connections are sometimes reasonably fast, but often horribly slow - possibly because of people using too much of the connection' bandwidth from their laptops. In its current state, this is not a recommended service.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bordershttp://daviswiki.org/Borders2009-11-20 16:29:13SunjeetBaadkarChanges to pronouns <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Borders<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 57: </td> <td> Line 57: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ''2007-06-08 20:40:02'' [[nbsp]] And on a side note: Borders is a retail books<span>tore</span> (<span>what</span> bookstore<span>&nbsp;isn't?</span>).
