So I did make it back to one of the Borders stores before they closed.
Actually it was sort of a funny story…I called the store at about 4 pm and asked the guy when the last day would be and his response was we are closing between 6 and 6:30 today and everything is either a $1 or 95% off…so are you coming in. What else could I respond but yes…and boy was I happy I did. I scored this awesome pile for $9. Hey if they are not good then I spent less than a $1 on each one and I can always donate them to a library…or to my sister in France who is always looking for books in English lol!!
