Borders, and to a lesser extent Barnes & Noble, are struggling to stay afloat amidst the popularity of e-readers. <a class="postlink" href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40719268/ns/business-retail/?gt1=43001" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40719268/ns ... ?gt1=43001</a> I find it hard to believe book stores would ever become totally obsolete. I'm sure there will always be a smaller niche market out there for them, similar to vinyl record stores. But I don't think they'll be nearly as commonplace 10, or even 5 years from now. It's a shame too, as book stores are one of the few places in the mall I enjoy when the wife wants to go shopping.
