I have mixed feelings about this. The shop had its moment in the TWOP sun, and it had a good media/journalism section – but jobs are being lost, and there is apostrophe abuse here, and the shop smacked a bit of Wal-Mart. Before I am excoriated let me say I yield to no-one in my admiration for Borders’ workers: they (including a former student of mine) were always helpful and showed a passion for books and reading. Why do we need exclamation marks? Is 20 per cent “massive”? How many people are being sacked? I am sure independent bookstore owners are weeping with sorrow.
