The Bookshelf, Young Texas Reader, Blog Notes, & Texana Youtube Channel

The Texas Bookshelf is for single, specific books' reviews and author interviews . The Texas Parlor ranges more broadly than my other websites. The Young Texas Reader focuses on the youngest through teenagers. Texas Blog Notes surveys blogs of historical and literary interest. I've started a Will's Texana Youtube collecting channel where 1,000 videos are collected in 100 playlists . Find Will in Houston or at willstexana {at} yahoodotcom

Marks Hinton Adopts S.O. Young

Houstonian Marks Hinton reports that he read in the last "Monthly" about the "Portal to Texas History Adopt a Book Digitally" program. He adopted S.O. Young's Thumb-Nail about Houston. He says it cost him only $40. So, the "Portal" folks will digitally scan the volume and from then on it'll be available on line to EVERYBODY without cost. Congratulations, Marks!
See review by none other than E.W. Winkler in the TSHA's Quarterly at
And Congratulations to the Portal for the service. See the progam at
PS: Marks' new book on Houston streets is nearing publication.
