Waldenbooks/Borders Closing in Lawton Area: Final 2 Weeks; Where to Get Books Now?

I’m an avid reader so I’ve been sad to hear that the only big name bookstore in the Lawton area is closing. For the next 2 weeks you can find prices at 60-80% off original prices at Waldenbooks in Central Mall as they prepare to close. I made it up there to take a look around a few weeks back but I wasn’t impressed with prices enough to stock up just yet. I hope to make it up there again in the coming weeks but it’s made me start to wonder; Where will we get books now?

I know there is a Hastings on Sheridan and even a couple of trade book stores on Gore but where do you get most of your books these days? I haven’t gotten my hands on the Kindle yet but I would love to hear your thoughts on them if you’ve tried one. I love Half Price Books in OKC but I don’t make it up there enough to keep my book habit satisfied. How do you satisfy your love of books locally besides the library and Walmart?


Borders Going Out of Business including WaldenBooks

It’s sad, but true. Border’s is going out of business and I received an email saying that all Border’s Bucks need to be used by the end of the month (7/31).

They are starting sales today (7/22) at 40% off online and in stores. You will be able to use your Gift Cards during this event and Borders Rewards members can still enjoy any of their additional savings until August 5th.

This is a great opportunity to stock up on any of your favorite books but don’t wait too long to see sales get lower, the inventory may not include any of your favorites by that time.

Farewell Borders, you fed me and my mother’s book addiction well over the years.
