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.

Texas Calendar

Cartoonist Roger Todd Moore, up out of Merkel, publishes a "Bona Fide Original Real" Texas Calendar. It starts with March the 2nd, Independence Day, but spills into 2010 for January and February, so it's twelve months. $8.00. On tan, 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Pre-punched hole at the top.

One or two cartoons emblazon the top of each month's page, and 4 to 6 days each month contain historical notes from the Revolution to modern times. Wimmen are often the target in the yeehaw jokes.
