Books by Larry McMurtry

Books is a nonfiction book from award-winning novelist and screenwriter Larry McMurtry about his lifelong obsession with books. Before he became a successful writer, he was a "bookman," a collector of used and antiquarian books. What grew out of a love for reading became a collection so large that he has no hope of ever reading them all. His collection now occupies five buildings in Archer City, Texas. He chronicles the thrills of searching for copies of rare books, often finding them from people and places who have no idea of their value. Books has received mostly positive reviews with BookPage saying, "McMurtry admits that this volume, filled with the 'arcane detail' of the antiquarian book trade, may not appeal to the general reader. But for book lovers who can't pass a used bookstore without ducking inside, this memoir will make that next visit even more enticing."
