Borders closing 28 more stores (map)

Borders closing 28 more stores (map) Bookstore

I've just come across another list of store closures which Borders released just yesterday. Once again, I have made a map, and it's embedded after the break. The stores on this map will be closing in late May.

It looks like 4 clusters, doesn't it? I don't think the ones in the midwest are close enough to qualify as clusters - just the 7 in the Northeast and the 7 in CA.

Out of the 228 stores, California is losing the most, with a grand total of 42 (35 before plus 7 now). After that Illinois and Florida lost the most with 17 and 16 stores closing, respectively.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
