did not like it
bookshelves: memoir

Larry McMurtry is one of my all-time favorite authors, but Books: A Memoir was pointless and just plain awful. I picked up the book thinking that it would be about books that influenced him or the books he has written, but instead it is almost entirely about his work as a scout, purchasing books and searching for rare editions of books. It was like reading a book about someone else's flea market trips.

Lisa I'm halfway through and sadly agree. I will finish Books only because I'm such a McMurtry fan otherwise.
