Share a little about yourself! We know you're a reader. What do you enjoy reading?


Ramona (ramjag) | 5 comments I read "News of the World" some time ago, and I enjoyed it very much. I love books of the western time period, including those books on Quanah Parker. I just finished reading "The Dollhouse," by Fiona Davis, and am now reading "The Address" by Fiona Davis which is even better. I like mysteries and psychological thrillers such as "The Fixer" series by T.E. Woods (a woman author). In a different reading direction....loved "A Gentleman in Moscow." I enjoy reading reviews of others, and getting ideas and recommendations of favorite reads.

Excellent! Good to hear from you, Ramona. If you ever need any new book ideas, you can ask the HCPL Bookhunters for tips. Link: http://www.hcpl.net/form/book-hunters...

I grew up near Fort Parker (Groesbeck, TX area), so I've been fascinated with Quanah Parker since childhood. There's a little museum in Groesbeck that has a display about him and his mother.


Ramona (ramjag) | 5 comments I LOVE the stories about Quanah and, of course, his mother who was kidnapped by the Indians. Thank you for the link. I live in Austin. :)

Ramona, you may still be able to take advantage of our Bookhunters readers' advisory--even if you're outside Harris County. We'd love to help!
