My weekend outfit!  The almost thigh-high zipper detailing on the jeans are just a little work inappropriate…but undoubtedly cool and perfect for weekends. 😉

I received news (over Twitter, of course) that Borders announced they were closing about a third of their bookstores across the nation last week…sad news for Union Square as we’re losing both the Powell Street and the Westfield Shopping Centre locations (no more bookstores in Union Square)!  Bookstores have always meant a lot to me – my parents raised my sister and I on the notion that we may not always get the toys and clothes we wanted, but there was never a book they wouldn’t buy for us.  Call me old-school, but nothing can replace that peaceful feeling you get when you browse through the aisles of a bookstore and flip the pages of a crisp new book before deciding whether to buy it.

So for my soon-to-be final purchase at Borders in San Francisco, I’d like to ask you for your book recommendations!  What have you read and loved recently?  Please share in the comments!  Thank you!!!
