"I pull out my mariachis
to serenade you under your window

you shyly tug at the curtains
as if they were made of flesh

I'm lost in a tangle of websites! Do you have four blogs? If so, do I understand that three (Bookshelf, Parlor and Young Reader) review books? Then, Texas Blog Notes talks about all things Texas? Do you post on each of the blogs every day? Whew! My question (somewhere in here!) is how should I best read your blogs...how often should I check? Thanks for all work getting this together. I appreciate the entertainment and education!
