"Booked Up" Not Closing

An Archer City bookstore is not closing but downsizing.

Booked Up is planning on selling some 350,000 books at a public auction in August. That will leave them with a collection of 150,000 books in their one building. The books that are being put back into circulation are collections from other bookshops in America's past. The store feels it's healthy to get that reading material out there for new eyes to read.

Booked Up is in the heart of Archer City. It's right across Center Street from the historic Archer County Courthouse.
