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

Scholarly Books

BiblioVault: A Scholarly Book Repository 
The University of Chicago Press operates a book site - BiblioVault - for scholarly books.  It's self-description includes:
"The BiblioVault repository serves 60 scholarly presses and contains digital files for more than 14,000 books.

Most books published over the past few years exist as electronic files originally used to print the hard copy. Older books that exist only in hard copy can be scanned to create electronic files. Publishers can deposit both types of files in BiblioVault."


A search for the subject of "Texas" brought 196 books.
