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.

I Have Been Diagnosed - GlennDromgoole

"Abilene author and book columnist Glenn Dromgoole has published his 20th book, "I Have Been Diagnosed with a Fatal Disease and other poems."
"The poems, written during the past three years, cover a variety of topics and moods, ranging from light-hearted commentary on men, food, socks and weather to serious pieces about life and death, especially the sudden death of his 31-year-old daughter Janet in 2005.
Dromgoole, editor of the Abilene Reporter-News from 1986-1997, writes a column on Texas books and authors for nine newspapers and magazines. He chairs the West Texas Book and Music Festival and he and his wife Carol own Texas Star Trading Company, 174 Cypress St. downtown, where autographed copies of his books are available."
