Borders - The Woodlands, TX, 9-2-11
I see no point in buying anything at a cheap price just because it is a good deal - but I did manage to find four books that I am happy to add to my shelves (well three to the shelves and one that will probably just be read and put in a closet for now).
I also found a hardback called If Trouble Don't Kill Me, that I've had on my wish list for a while but never got around to ordering on the net. It's the story of the Hall brothers, a couple of thriving bluegrass music performers who had their brief careers wrecked by the onset of World War II. Theirs is supposed to be quite a story, and I'm really happy to add this one to my collection of musician biographies.
C.B. James's review of it, I recognized the title A Novel Bookstore and grabbed a copy of it in paper for a measly $4.50. It looks interesting - and I'm a born sucker for novels or movies that feature bookstores, so it was a no-brainer purchase.
I also snapped a few pictures of the store but all I had with me was my iPad and the camera on that thing is nothing to write home about. The pictures do, however, give a good feel for what Borders stores are starting to look like at this point.
