E-reading topples Borders


A local bookstore is closing and the increasing popularity of electronic readers is partially to blame.

Borders in Woodbury began liquidation late last month after the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this year.

Last Wednesday afternoon, the Woodbury store was hopping with customers of all ages trying to score some deals before the store closes for good.

A number of books, movies, CDs, magazines and games were discounted.
