It’s as though a witty and well-informed friend whose conversation you delighted in had suddenly left town.

That’s a strange way to feel about an assemblage of inanimate objects. And yet I’m still bereft over the shuttering of the Borders bookstore in Downtown Crossing. A victim of changing habits — and of online competitors with big price advantages — the store closed after its parent, Borders Group Inc., filed for bankruptcy last summer.
