Borders has made several big miss-steps along the way into the ebook world. Their brick-and-mortar stores have not been doing well, forcing them to lay off workers and shut down stores. This is why I laughed, rolled my eyes, and shrugged off the news of Borders potentially buying out Barnes and Nobles. Yeah right, like that was going to happen.
Borders has been in financial trouble for a while now. It will be interesting to see if one of the big box stores of books is about to go under. Yikes.
