Please Turn to Chapter 11

What with Kindles and iPads and Nooks,
It's now the rare reader who brooks
The paper and ink,
So the outlook will shrink
For a bookseller selling just books.    

The Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing of the Borders bookstore chain points to the upheaval in the publishing industry, caused in part by the advent of online retailers and e-readers, of which Borders has none to offer.


  1. Truly inspired limerick, including the clever title! However, not good news for us authors.
