Booked Up Inc. is pleased to announce that we have passed our 50th year as Booksellers to Texas and the World. We are happy to see our stock of Fine, Rare and Scholarly Books flying off to all corners of the planet -- Khristal Collins, Jan Graves and Larry McMurtry
Booked Up began in Washington, D.C. and is now located in the Texas panhandle, just two hours northwest of DFW Airport in Larry McMurtry’s hometown of Archer City, Texas. Booked Up carries between 150,000 and 200,000 fine and scholarly books. All stock has been purchased and shelved over the last four decades by owner and founder Larry McMurtry.
To All Book People: Rumors that we have moved or been sold are pernicious nonsense! We are right where we have been for so long — on Main St. in Archer City -- Larry McMurtry and Khristal Collins.

Book folks who came to our auction five years ago may want to enjoy Archer City again: Forceful breeze, but very buyable books!
