Worrying news (UK)

Borders UK is going into administration.
There goes one of the few booksellers we have locally who still stock substantial amounts of backlist and of US as well as UK paperbacks. (I know Borders aren't perfect, but since Heffers was gutted by the Evil From Oxford, and since Waterstones decided they were bestseller focused, Borders have been the best chain we have in Cambridge, at least.)

Evening edit: it's now even more complicated, as the administrators have pulled out citing a 'conflict'. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2009/nov/26/borders-books-set-administration
