Mall Bookstores Closing

Borders announces it's closing 200 Waldens and Express stores.

B&N already announced they're closing the B. Dalton chain.

So no little bookstores in the mall anymore.

I have to say - I haven't shopped at one in years anyway. If I want to browse books or meet someone for coffee, I'll go to one of the big stores, which are safe (for now). Though the one I go to in Scarsdale looks like it's about to close - there are never more than two people working in that gigantic store, and there are stacks of unshelved books everywhere, and shelves in disarray, like it hasn't been straightened up or stocked for weeks.
