Anyone who knows me or has been reading my blogs knows how unhappy I am at the loss of the two local Borders bookstores and the Borders Express I frequented. Then last month I discovered that the used bookstore I enjoyed was closing as well. It’s not been a good year for the brick and mortar bookstores.

Like the honey badger, it's pretty badass!
It’s called 2nd & Charles, part of a chain I hadn’t encountered before now. It sells – of course — used books, but also movies, video games (from the 360 all the way back to the old Nintendo cartridges!), and music. Pretty cool.
No, it doesn’t completely make up for the loss of the Borders, but any day I come home with a bag full of books is a good one!
