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.

Wallpaper City Guide: Houston

    Offcite, an architectural blog of Houston branched from the Rice Design Alliance folks, has jumped right into 2010 with a review of a volume which pays attention to Houston architecture and hotspots.  It's a Wallpaper City Guide about Houston.  It begins:  "Rather than plainly document a bounty of recreational attractions, the recently-released Wallpaper City Guide: Houston (published jointly by the Wallpaper magazine and Phaidon) postures itself as the "fast-track" guide for the discerning traveler, offering a "tightly edited," "ruthlessly researched," "rigorously selected," and "discreetly packaged" list of the city's design-conscious locales. Instead of the design-minded denizen, the target audience is the weekend tourist or business traveler — so it's tempting for a local to scrutinize the 100-page volume."
