Borders is closing their huge Chicago flagship store because it "isn't meeting profit goals."

And in Boston, The Harvard Book Store is launching an emissions-free book delivery program:

In partnership with MetroPed, “Boston’s human-powered delivery service,” Harvard Book Store will now deliver all local orders for as little as $5, six days a week, using emissions-free vehicles. And all in-stock orders placed for Cambridge and parts of Somerville and Allston will receive same- or next-day delivery.

Some bookstore in Seattle needs to start doing this green delivery thing.
