As Borders around the country host  going-out-of business sales, readers have sent in photographs of gloomy humor at the struggling bookseller.

Above, we’ve embedded a Borders going-out-of-business photo from a Reddit user that generated 280 comments from readers. Earlier this week, eBookNewser posted a photo of a sarcastic sign outside of another closing Borders.

Yesterday The New York Times reported that the company’s bankruptcy plan has faced criticism: “[P]ublishers characterized the plan as unrealistic and said they were more convinced than ever that Borders would be forced to sell itself or liquidate.”
