Conintinuing the Legacy
This is the weekend that Larry McMurtry’s famed Archer City bookstore Booked Up, Inc. is closing its doors. I am a long time fan of McMurtry’s novels, but one of my favorite books is his memoir Books, which talks about his love of writing and book collecting. I know many a bibliophile who has taken a pilgrimage to Archer City to visit the famed bookstore complete with bookstore cat: Leo. Austinites can be proud that we can carry on the bookstore legacy here at Recycled Reads. While we don’t have a bookstore cat (yet), we do have tens of thousands of books of every genre from literary classics to current bestsellers; from children’s picture books to graphic novels. We receive awesome donations that include vintage, first editions, collectibles and just off the wall wonders. As well as carrying on the tradition of shared literacy and book treasures, all of our proceeds benefit the Austin Public Library. If you love books as much as Larry McMurtry and all of us here at APL, I encourage you to donate to and shop at Austin’s own bookstore wonder: Recycled Reads.
