Borders - Superb!

Absolutely brilliant news has come through that Borders UK, which was up for sale by its US parent company, has successfully been bought by Luke Johnson and will remain under David Roche's control. Any other solution - and the options ranging from shipbreaking to one that would involve integration with another business (read months of eye-off-the-ball and closures) - would have spelled disaster, for them and us. Borders do an excellent job of supporting independent publishers. I am simply thrilled by this news.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
