Teachers Get 25% Discount at Borders This Weekend

Looking for something to do Friday evening? Head down to your local Borders bookstore for a "special reception" to kick off educator appreciation week at Borders. From March 19th through the 25th Borders is giving current and retired teachers a 25% discount on just about everything in stock. Click here to read all of the details.

Clarification: The discounts do start today, however, the reception is Friday evening, not Thursday evening. The wording of my original post may have caused some confusion over that point. I apologize for the confusion I may have caused.
