    Starting tomorrow, 300-thousand books from Larry McMurtry's "Booked Up" stores will be auctioned off in "The Last Book Sale".
    McMurtry, author of Pulitzer Prize-winning "Lonesome Dove" and other greats like "Terms of Endearment", says it's time to close the doors of three of his Booked Up shops in Archer City.
    Booked Up Number One will keep its doors open, and its shelves full.
    McMurtry says he selected about 125-thousand books to stay at the store and there will be something for everyone.
    The book auction starts at 10 a.m. tomorrow and will pick up again at 10 Saturday morning.
    To register for bidding, you can visit the Booked Up Number Two location before the auction.
    And tomorrow night, Larry McMurtry's son, James, will be in concert at the Royal Theater.
    Doors open at 6:30 and James McMurtry will take the stage at 7:30 tomorrow night.
    Tickets are $25.
