Speaking of Borders

No, not that kind (although I really do want to see
Under the Same Moon (La Misma Luna) & check out the great thing Tommy Lee Jones had to say about the fence or as he calls it the ‘complete disaster’), actually I’m referring to the really cool Borders Media site.

I was never into big chain book stores. As a kid all my books were second hand buys from flea markets or hand me downs from my sister and cousin, or library loans. In fact, for most of my childhood in Spanish Harlem, the only big bookstore was about a two mile radius away, downtown on 86th Street. It wasn’t until I was a teen that I ventured that far and then later discovered the smaller bookstores tucked away in Harlem and the Columbia University area. I happily spent the money I earned babysitting my way through college on ‘brand new’ books.

At my last gig, I discovered Borders, since there was one located right downstairs. With its weekly coupons, deals & sales and a newly revamped site – all shiny and Web2.dope, I couldn’t pass it up.

Today, I noticed some cool, new, rich multimedia content that’s right up this blog’s alley:
