Borders Is History
The unfortunate demise of 75% of all Chicagoland Borders retail outlets has one small bright spot, 75% off all purchases. The closing stores are currently at 40% with 25% added in for buying 8 or more books plus 10% if you are a Borders Club member. I stopped by one of the North Shore stores and picked up a few items. Borders has always had one of the better selections from serious military history publishers such as Kansas Press and Pen & Sword. Two notables were Allan R. Millettt's "The War For Korea: They Came From The North" and the 2nd volume of H. P. Willmott's "The Last Century of Sea Power." Some good reading to look forward to.
