Happy 2nd Blogoversary to me! I started blogging in July 2009. Here is a link to my first blog post exactly two years ago. The first year hardly counted because I didn't know what I was doing and I had about seven followers, so I could almost consider this my first blogoversary.

Day 1 Question:
Borders Books (USA and Canada) is going out of business. How will this affect you and where will you/do you shop for books most often?
My Answer: Borders is the only bookstore in my town other than a few used book stores, none of which are very good. I am completely bummed that Borders is going-out-of-business. I have decided that I will be more deliberate about supporting the Independent Book Stores in my area and in Seattle (University Bookstore in Tacoma and Elliott Bay Books in Seattle) and I resolve to purchase books from them so that they won't go out of business and I will still have some options of a place to go to browse for books. I still get the majority of my books from the public library and I admit to purchasing quite a few books from Amazon.com.
Now it is your turn. Remember your comment enters you in the drawing for a prize.
