bookshelves: couldn-t-finish
Read in March, 2012

Larry McMurtry is also the author of well-known books like Lonesome Dove and coauthor of Brokeback Mountain. I expected a book a little like Pat Conroy's memoir about books in his life-- how they influenced him as a writer and person. Instead, this book was more about Larry's almost obsessive need for book acquisition. He is a collector; it is obviously his passion. But just hearing about all the books he's bought, sold, and hoards wasn't a good read for me. I didn't finish it.
