As you may have heard, Borders books will be filing for Chapter 11 bankrupacy, which could close a large amount of it’s stores. This has a very negative impact on people like Glothelegend, who gets %100 of his manga from Borders books, as no one else in his entire GOD DAMN STATE supplies a good supply of said reading material. Being that I am a member or something like that to Borders or something, I got this email, and thought I’d share it with everyone, because I have nothing better to do at 1 AM on a Thursday.
Can you even read that? Well I didn’t make it any smaller. That’s the actual size. Basically, the CEO says that nothing is going to change despite this economic struggle, asides to “under-performing stores”, which will close. On a personal note. I’ve always felt that reading books in hand is better than reading a book on a computer or electronic device. It’s good to turn pages and feel the paper. I even like the smell of books. I really hope that Borders stays open at least until I die, because sometimes I will go on a reading binge.
I don’t THINK that the Borders near me will be closing, because it’s huge and right next to a giant mall, and the other Border is IN a mall (but I don’t like that one because they don’t have much manga, and it’s clustered comparatively). But if it does, I will spend about 100$ on manga, and totally clean the place out (huge sales after all, got to get my Negima).
On that note, I lost power recently, and had nothing to do, so I stupidly started reading Negima again. Now I’m going to go broke buying more volumes, because I refuse to read that online. In fact, most manga online just sucks. The art just isn’t as good. I wish I could find some Mysterious Girlfriend X at Border’s. The artwork really suffers from being put online.
Anyway, best luck to Borders. I now understand why you didn’t hire me the 304588439 times I applied. It’s because you had no money to pay me, not because I had any faults (I’m literally the best worker I know).
In other news, this is only my 5 post this month. A very slow month for me.
