I just decided ...

... I won't being buying anymore books at Borders for a while. Glenn is right, this is cowardice and should not be given a pass.


  1. Maybe Borders should refuse to stock Salman Rushdie novels, too. Can't be too careful.

  2. Satanic Verses was not stocked in any UK bookshops for years -- I believe the publishers had to pulp the first print run.
    Not sure if it is now stocked -- since the Ayatollah famously died before his cursed victim, will have a look next time I am in a bookshop -- which obviously can't be Borders now, and as WH Smith is given over to cell phone franchises and cafes, Waterstones or nothing!
