Elvis Has Left The Building

About eight years ago I first went into Borders in Oxford and thought that I had discovered the future. There was a big book shop with comfy reading areas and Cafe, a large CD and video area down an escalator, and most of the CDs I could listen to over head phones from their library. So I was able to find lots of new music before buying. Back then I was into World Music. But today this young lady locked the door for the final time.

Elvis has left the Building.

No great loss. All Borders ever did here was to help drive all the old wonderful REAL bookstores where owners knew the books because they read them, out of business.
