I’m downtown today so I can work at the central library (my local branch is closed on Fridays) and of course I dropped in to the liquidation sale at Borders.
Borders was good to me, if you know what I mean. They ordered my books and stocked them, and judging by what I could see on the shelves, they took more than B&N. So I’m grateful that they stocked my books.
But I couldn’t bring myself to buy anything from them now. Once they’re in liquidation, you KNOW that nothing spent in that store will be going to the publishers or authors. Every penny is going to secured creditors and executive bonuses, and if I’m going to live with the guilt of that, I’m going to need 50% off, at least.
Anyway, in fun human games, today I witnessed a woman astonished to discover that she would have to buy something in the cafe if she wanted to site down in there and use their wireless internet. Shocking, I know.
Finally, I need to get off the web. For some reason I can’t connect to the library wifi, and I’m forced to log on with one of the library’s computers. And! since creepy motherfuckers use these computers to look at pron videos all the time, I feel like washing my hands.
Have a great weekend you guys. If you’re at SDCC, have a greatest weekend.

Wow. They have a cafe still? And wireless internet still? We lost those on Wednesday at the Borders I work at.
Sorry, there was supposed to be a transition there. It wasn’t the Borders cafe. It was a different one.
The library is my bookshelf; since none of my fantasy, sf , or true crime look good on a shelf I let them hold onto em.
If I were reading The Great Gatsby I might put that shit on a shelf for the world to see…
Scott Fitzgerald? eff that guy!
