A Bookstore is Gone, Long Live the Books! Part 5-Gene Autry and the Redwood Pirates

A local used bookstore recently closed after 25 years. They had a fantastic going-out-of-business sale. While part of me feels “guilty” for taking advantage of their sad circumstances, the rest (and logical) part of me knows that they needed to sell as many books as possible. Through these books, a bit of their entrepreneurial and intellectual spirit will live on. With that idea in mind, I’m doing a limited-run series where I’ll spotlight each of the volumes I “adopted” from this sweet little shop. Shine on, you bookish gems!

Today’s selection? Gene Autry and the Redwood Pirates.

WHY I BOUGHT IT:

Look. at. the. title. Who could resist this book? Not this gal! I collect “novels” based on 1960s television shows (Dr. Kildare, The Patty Duke Show, etc.); this is just another, earlier, iteration of that concept.

Thanks for reading! I hope you like the new series. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
