Today I spent the day in the library collecting resources for my research. I saved everything to my jump drive and thought I’d go to an office store after the library to get the articles printed (the library cost $.15 a page and the office store is $.05). I looked at the websites for Office Max and Staples and chose Staples because it looked like it was cheaper and it  [ Read More ]

Pricey Booklover Gift

If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for the book lover in your life (and you have $80) this might be an options for you. Even with a heavy duty air purifier and regular vacuuming around the apartment, our book collection can be a pain to clean, gathering dust like a Katamari dustball. The books at the top of our bookshelves are especially hard to dust; we have to  [ Read More ]

SantaThing is so cool!

Somehow I missed this last year, but LibraryThing has announced its second annual SantaThing event!. SantaThing is Secret Santa for LibraryThing members. The idea is simple. Pay $25. You play Santa to a random LibraryThing member, and find them up $20 worth of books, based on their library or a short description. Someone else does the same to you. LibraryThing orders the books and pays the shipping, so no addresses  [ Read More ]

Universal Wish List

PayPal Plugin

This is pretty darn neat. You can now use PayPal on sites that don’t use PayPal. PayPal provides a quick and easy way to pay for goods on eBay,, or other sites that accept the service. But what if you want to buy something from a store that doesn’t accept PayPal, but don’t feel like giving up your credit card information? Last year PayPal launched a service that lets  [ Read More ]

New Site

I mentioned that the new Beta site was available back in January, but the new site wasn’t ready until now! If you’re interested in searching Borders online apart from Amazon (which is where Borders has been for years), then give their new site a look. I certainly like the new homepage and the shelf browsing feel it offers … very Borders-like Technorati Tags: books, borders

Download Digital Content at Borders

This via USAToday: When you walk through the doors of Borders’ (BGP) new concept store, the place feels familiar. As with any big-box bookstore, you’ll find a coffee shop over here and some strategically placed leather chairs over there. And, of course, lots of books. But follow the table of books snaking off to the right, and you’ll come face-to-face with Borders’ newest retail strategy: a digital center where you  [ Read More ]

New (finally…)

I mentioned almost a year ago that Borders was going to be splitting from – now I find a link to Borders beta via MoMB. Looks pretty spiffy to me. I’ll have to browse later – but if the prices are no different then in the store – I’ll be sticking with Amazon for now. Technorati Tags: Borders bookstore
