Gloom is a good descriptive word I think, and very apt for this mornings news from Reuters that Border’s UK are in administration. Over at The Bookseller employee’s of Borders were commenting that they hadn’t been told anything by their management and now Reuters have issued a follow up statement saying that Borders is “mulling administration” but is not yet “in” administration. Sigh.
How awful for all the employees.
And for all bookshops.
Love your bookshops people, support them, don’t just do that easy, online clicky thing!
