Publishers Weekly reports
that book publishers are not impressed with embattled bookseller Borders Books' latest proposal to keep afloat.
PW's sources say that Borders is seeking new financing and would like book publishers to accept a note or bond instead of missed payments. The company would also like more time to pay for book shipments.
Borders should find out next week if several banks it has approached will provide necessary financing. Until then, its unlikely the book publishers are going to agree to any terms.
