This is McMurtry's book about books and book buying. He recounts his getting into book scouting/buying/selling while telling the stories of many of the people he met over the course of his career (as a book seller, rather than writer). He doesn't spend much time talking about his writing or his personal reading. McMurtry is also quite self conscious of how this book about books will come across and whether it would be entertaining or not. Any lover of books as physical items and the characters that deal in them will find that this a solid read.

I would really love to make a trip to Archer City TX to see his book store in person. One day perhaps, one day...
