The Bookshelf, The Parlor, The Young Texas Reader, and the Monthly

The Texas Bookshelf is different from the The Texas Parlor, . The Texas Parlor carries "general" bookish information and non-book information and even different Texana news and notes of use to the bibliographically challenged and other nosey folks intersted in historical, literary, and cultural observations. Will's Texana Monthly may carry material from either blog, but extends itself beyond those, especially for longer compilations or treatments. The Monthly, the Bookshelf and the Parlor are all companions. So, is the Young Texas Reader which specialized on books and such things for the youngest to the teenagers.

Yao Ming - Ming and Ric Bucher

YAO: a life in two worlds.

By Yao Ming and Ric Bucher. NY: Hyperion Press / Miramar Books, 2004. pbk 290 pp.

Ric Bucher, of ESPS fame, assists the story of Yao Ming, the 7’5”, now recently married, of the Houston Rockets basketball team. The color photos of Yao’s early life are sure to please. In fact chapter 2 “A Boy in China” may be the most fascinating part of the book. But fans will follow the glowing, though repetitious, workouts, NBA nervousness, racism, butting heads with Shaquille O’Neal, growing maturity, and domestic life. They still love Yao in China, and he tours the CBA. Yao says its not impossible for Houston to win the championship this year! But he’s yet to win his Spurs. May be o.p., try Target.
