now is just about the time

Borders’ liquidation sale has now reached the 40-60% threshold (as of Thursday). Most books are 40% including the ones I purchased. That means you’ll probably pay just about as much as you would via amazon.com (when you factor in Borders tax and amazon’s non-tax). I can speak mostly to art and design books which are usually 30-32% off retail at Amazon. Though some only have a 20% discount on amazon. Also very importantly, amazon will indeed hike up the “retail” cost which is sneaky and plain wrong.

There’s still plenty of good books to be purchased, at least at the Wheaton, IL and Oak Brook, IL Borders.

The next couple days I’ll share the four books I scored at Borders. These posts will continue through the weekend.
