I went to Borders today; people were ransacking it

Borders is closing some stores and today I went to one of the ones that was closing and it was jam packed. While there, I picked a bunch of random books, taking pictures of their prices. Every book that I photographed, I'm putting online so it's a fair contest. Lets compare prices and see why Borders is closing. Borders prices are figured with their 20% discount and a 6% Michigan sales tax since that's part of the price too.
