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.

American Windmills - Lindsay Baker

Author turns collection of windmill photos into book.

Sunday, July 20, 2008
REVIEW BEGINS:  "If you don't live in West Texas or remember it from "back when," you probably don't really comprehend what's happening in that part of the state, where traffic jams are rare and wide open space plentiful.
In a word, it's windmills. Well, more accurately, two words: wind turbines.
Like sunflowers in a wet year, wind turbines by the hundreds are popping up on mesa tops from Sweetwater to the Midland-Odessa area to the Panhandle. Nolan County alone will have 1,500 turbines rotating by the end of the year, enough to power a large city."
