Books: A Memoir

Books: A Memoir Books: A Memoir by Larry McMurtry

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
I picked this up on the recommendation of mt father-in-law, who thought I'd like it.l I've got to admit, it wasn't what I expected. I was expecting much more about why books are important to McMurtry, what their impact on his life has been. There was a little of that, but mostly this was tales from his experiences as a book buyer and seller. Parts were interesting, but there was a bunch of antiquarian book lingo I'm not familiar with, references to authors I don't know, and stories about people that I honestly didn't care about.
