Years ago, I worked at an independent bookstore in Tucson, AZ called The Book Mark. Larry was one of our regular customers. Sweet guy, friendly as can be. He wouldn't do book signings, but he'd sign copies of his books while he was there so we could label them "autographed copies." He'd come in and drop $2000-3000 easy on books -- all subjects, fiction and non-fiction, although mostly non-fiction. I remember him buying some hella expensive art books and thinking I'd never be able to afford one, let alone five or six at a time.
