Former Borders Employee Unloads on Former Customers In 'Ode to a Bookstore Death'

Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Your formerly helpful Borders customer assistant knows you're a philistine.

You read a book because you liked the movie or Oprah told you, you think Nicholas Sparks is a great author and don't even get this guy or gal started on Glenn Beck.

This employee with nothing left to lose decided to unload through a poster-sized confession. We get the sense that this was edited down to fit, because sometimes a poster just isn't large enough.
