Earlier, I was talking about Monday evening’s launch, obviously. 5am starts and impulse tweeting apparently impact accuracy. Who knew? ;)

Rachel Mennies writes on bibliophilia and e-reading at The Inclusive. I, for one, remember most fondly Borders on Tottenham Court Road, the afternoons and evenings spent dipping into books and magazines, crossing paths with other writers, musicians, magazine editors, designers— it was an amazing place.
A side-thought: the Borders “open reading” model of welcoming browsers obviously didn’t help the bottom line, but was there no other business plan that could have made that kind of social/book space more financially viable?
