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.

Come Rain, Come Shine - Bedell

 Come Rain, Come Shine. By Jack B. Bedell.  Huntsville:  Texas Review Press, 2006.  59 pages, 5 ½ x 8 ½ , ISBN 1-881515-86-9 $16.00 (cloth and jacket);  ISBN 1-881515-87-6  $12.00 (paper)

Bedell teaches English at Southeastern Louisiana University, where he edits Louisiana Literature and directs the Louisiana Literature Press.  The volume reflects the Cajun exotic and mysterious world of French patois, frogs, turtles, herons, handfishing, batfishing, Jean Lafite and dancing at Fred's.  Yet the lines are quite approachable by all. There are lines we all wish to breathe, as in "L'avalasse," "Inside, my wife, and boys draw close / and breathe with such peace the house almost glows."  And other lines we all fear, as in "Dear Heron," "It startles me to find it pinned to barbed wire / on the edge of some pasture

It's genuinely very complex in this active life to listen news on Television, thus I only use internet for that purpose, and obtain the newest news.
