Heartbreaking Borders Photograph
Reddit user Jessers25 took the photo embedded above at a Borders going out of business sale. In the photo, a Thomas Jefferson quote sat on a bare wall with a pile of dismantled bookshelves: “I cannot live without books.”
The photo has spawned hundreds of comments and a raging debate about the future of bookstores.
No matter what you think about mega-bookstores or Borders management, this is a sad year for everyone who loves books.
