    Borders is finally liquidating its assets, so I went to two different stores in my area just to raid the shelves. The discounts are pretty light this early in the game, but I still scored some of those plastic cheat sheets for chem and a anatomy/physiology coloring book, all for well under $20. :cool:

    What is everyone else getting from Borders? Would you have gotten it if it wasn't going under? What awesome steals have you found?

    When I went the "clearance" prices were still higher than Amazon's prices.

    Seattle's Best Syrups for $2.50 instead of $12. Bought ten of them. :thumbup: Only bought one book because my favorite section was only 10% off. I'll have to wait until later for the prices to go down more.

    Though I'm not sure this thread belongs here. It probably goes in the lounge.

    I think Borders should just liquidate their stock through Amazon. Oh, the irony.

    1984, Lost Symbol, Elle Wiesel's trilogy, and a map of the world. I'm probably going to go back when the sales are at or over 50% in late august. I'ma get that DSM-4 for 10$!!

    Cookbooks, a book by James Patterson, and a couple by Henning Mankell.

    Oh, and First Aid 2011. Then I think I threw up a little in my mouth. :barf:

    This thread has little to do with applying to medical school. Please consider The Lounge for all your socializing needs.
