So, does anyone have a Borders Books near them and has made any manga or anime purchases due to everything being on sale?
 
So far I've gotten six books:
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei vol 1
FMA vol 3
Gunsmith Cats revised edition omnibus vol 1-4
 
Pretty awesome, I'd been wanting to get those GSC books for a while now, so this was a great excuse.  A shame I'm losing the only two good bookstores near me, though.

Not yet. I will get a couple once they go past 20% off. The one closest to me doesn't have much left that I would want but it still has quite a bit of manga on the shelf. Nice pick ups for yourself but I feel what you mean. What you should do now is shop on RightStuf. The manga is a couple dollars cheaper than the store and there's no sales tax. Plus, shipping is free on orders over $50 and there are weekly deals for various publishers.

I really wanted to wait for the discounts to go up, but the books I got were the only copies they had left, and they were right there, and I had to rescue them.  Also Gunsmith Cats is awesome and everyone should get it.
 
There's also a bargain bookstore near me, and their manga is 3 or 4 bucks a book, which is awesome (I got Black Lagoon 1, Mushishi 1 and GIntama 9).  Unfortunately their stock is for the most part pretty messed up and small.  Like, books 5, 19 and 24 of one series, or just book 7 of another, or only book 1 of another series, except it is an untranslated JP import.  It is sadly going to be the only nearby bookstore after both nearby Borders close.
