If you want books in print, you better get them!! Come SHTF and no World Wide Web.Whatever, you'll have to read that same old magazine over and over.
Well sorta, Borders Bucks will be honored till 7/31 when they were going to expire anyway, Borders Rewards points will be good through 8/5, which kind of implies their doors won't actually be "closed" 7/31. 40% off most everything. At any rate, B&N and BAM are still in business.
