I just read this over at Marginal Revolution. I used to be a Borders fan but now find myself navigating the waters of Barnes & Noble. This statement seems to match my current inclination.
"Success of a book in Borders is less representative of overall success than it used to be; Borders (which is on the verge of going under, I might add) is now closer to an "indie" book store in many ways than it is to B&N."
How the market fluctuates! Who knew that Borders would be referred to as an indie bookstore....
I thought Powell's was Indie!
I suppose it's best to be an indie bookstore than nothing.
Back in 2003 I used to think Borders was as mainstream as it got. Funny how the tide turns.
