Iconic photo of the times - re: Borders closing
Advertisements [?]




Reddit user Jessers25 took the photo embedded above at a Borders going out of business sale. In the photo, a Thomas Jefferson quote sat on a bare wall with a pile of dismantled bookshelves: I cannot live without books.

The photo has spawned hundreds of comments and a raging debate about the future of bookstores.
