Silent Night for Borders UK

Returning to work yesterday knocked more out of me than I expected. I got home last night about 7:30, sat down in the recliner to rest for a moment and that was all she wrote. Bob the Cat woke me up hours later, demanding his dinner. I fed him and crawled into bed.

Today is the day the 45 Borders UK bookstores will close to customers. According to Publishers Lunch, the 1,100 staff will be laid off on Christmas Eve . . . without being paid (nice timing, that). No buyer has come forward for the chain so the administrator will be left trying to sell off the business' assets.
