Liquidation Diary: Bleak House

I've seen stores this empty before, but they were happy places, poised to receive vast shipments of books to fill their shelves. The dying patient gasps.

Even moving Governor Palin's book to the magic table--which moved thirty copies of the Jonas Brothers book in three days--has not helped her sales. Sorry, Sarah.

The sign doesn't work. But it does make me laugh every time I walk by it.

It is just so...weird. The only bookstore closest to me is *shudders* Books-a-Million. I am annoyed by all things Books-a-Million.

I blame Jarndyce & Jarndyce for Borders demise.

@Natalie: I've never been to Books-a-Million. Awful?

@Freeque: It certainly feels like this thing has been dragging on for Jarndycian generations.
