Borders trying the "everything but the kitchen sink" approach?

Publishers Weekly has done another post on the rumors surrounding the current state of the troubled Borders chain. According to their most recent information, some of the bookstores may be sold (possibly to Barnes and Noble), they'll be offering a $79.99 Kobo e-reader within the next few months, and there are plans to expand the chain's non-book items, including spa, gift, and stationery goods.

I will own myself straight-up amazed if there's enough money in cutesy pens and overpriced soy candles to support a chain as large as Borders, but any little bit helps, I suppose...
