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

The Texas Bookshelf is different from the The Texas Parlor, http://texasparlor.blogspot.com/ . 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 http://youngtexasreader.blogspot.com/ which specialized on books and such things for the youngest to the teenagers.

"Historic Hotels of Texas is as much a history book as it is a traveler's guide. You would be hard-pressed to find a hotel of historical significance missing from Liz Carmack's collection of the luxurious to threadbare lodgings around the state.
Here's a book that dares to include the Lancaster Hotel in Houston and Turkey, Texas' Hotel Turkey in the same list." ....
