Borders is in the midst of liquidating so I thought I’d see if I could find one of my daughter’s required reading books there and get a good deal in the process. I didn’t hold out much hope since the required reading books tend to sell out early under normal circumstances and I figured the chances were slim that I’d beat the organized parents to the punch when discounts were involved.
Much to my surprise I found several copies on the shelf and when I went to check out the clerk said “Oh you found one! We were out if them when I checked yesterday so we must have gotten a shipment in.” That surprised me because I always assumed that in a liquidation they sold the items already in the store and wholesaled whatever was in the warehouse. Shows what I know.
Anyway, if you’re looking for “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” you can get a copy at Borders. For now.
