Larry McMurtry is best known as a writer, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning “Lonesome Dove” and dozens of other books.  But he not only writes books.  He also reads books, collects books, buys books and sells books.  He owns a mammoth antiquarian bookstore with nearly

400,000 volumes in the small Texas town of Archer City.  This memoir is his reflections on a lifetime as a bookman.  He fills this book with endless anecdotes about books and book collectors.  I am amazed at his vast knowledge of rare and collectible books.

"Books” is not for everyone, but for the bibliophile, it is a page turner!
