As Borders book chain closed for good in the US last weekend, one disgruntled employee posted a kiss-off letter to the store's customers.

Posted anonymously in the window of an un-named store, Things We Never Told You: Ode to a Bookstore Death includes the following statements:

* We hate when a book becomes popular simply because it was turned into a movie.
* Your summer reading list was our summer reading NIGHTMARE.
* We always knew when you were intently reading Better Homes and Gardens, it was really a hidden Playboy.
* We were never a daycare. Letting your kids run free and destroy our kids section destroyed a piece of our souls.
* Oprah was not the 'final say' on what is awesome. We really didn't care what was on her show or what her latest book club book was. Really.

399 Borders stores were liquidated in July, and the last of the remaining Borders closed for good last weekend.
