Borders Coupon for 40% Off the List Price of Merchandise

Borders is offering a coupon for 40% off the list-price of one item. This is an in-store coupone.
This is a great discount if you want to buy a new paperback or new hardcover book.

The offer says that it's "Valid with Borders Rewards membership only" and it can't be combined with any other offers. Also, this coupon cannot be used with some items. The coupon is good until 8/9/09.

The last book I purchased at Borders was David Liss' book "The Coffee
Trader" and it was a great historical thriller. The book was also a good diversion because I was travelling through the US and Mexico at the time. I would be interested to check out some new historical novels at Borders.
