It’s very sad news indeed and I know you’ve all heard by now that Borders books is done for what seems like for good. Sure there’s a chance 30 stores or so might be saved, but either way, the news is still terrible, especially for someone like me. As I’ve said, and I quote:
“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.”
So now that news has hit that Borders is going to be gone at the month’s end, there’s only one thing left to do.
Buy fucking everything.
Today marks the first day of liquidation sales, and as such, marks the first day that I’ve spent almost $100 on manga alone.
That doesn’t look like much. Only 9 volumes, but even with the sales, that still ran my bill for the day to $108 (I also bought Sucker Punch, just like I said I would). All in all I saved only about 16 dollars on the manga. That’s nothing, but hey, with those saved 16 dollars, I can go back when the sales get even bigger, and maybe buy 4 more volumes of manga. So THERE!
In the end, the demise of Borders is bittersweet. Barnes & Noble sucks, and there’s no way I’m buying from a place that overcharges the shit out of my books for school, so that leaves me with amazon.com if I ever want more manga, and even though the manga is cheap as fuck (can find used for like……2 bucks), the shipping charges are a bitch, so it sucks cock to buy online. This is bullshit.
I plan on buying more shit there, because I fucking can. I have my eye set HEAVILY on a nice big table there, because I need one for all of my ceramics. Oh, you didn’t know that I throw clay on the wheel like a champ? Yeah, I’m the best at everything. Including buying manga that’s average when there’s shit like Gantz that I could’ve gotten instead. I’m a fucking moron.
RIP Borders. I’m going to mourn you, but first I’m going to eat you.
