“The true beginning of our end.” – Midsummer Night’s Dream

Borders has announced that it is going out of business and liquidating all its stores.  I feel as though this is the beginning of the end of the hard-copy book.  I know there are e-books and kindles and nooks and what-not, but I’m a bit old fashioned when it comes to sitting down and reading a fresh novel.  I just like having the feel of it in my hands.  I know e-books are the wave of the future, and I’m sure I’ll adjust, but I am just a little sad that the traditional hard-copy book seems to be losing its place at the pinnacle of a well-stocked library.
