Book Hunters in Brief #63: The Book Hunters Go Texan!

It’s that time of year again! Time for the greenest of greenhorns and the grizzliest of grizzled cowpokes to don their very best duds and scoot their boots over to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. In the spirit of the season, Harris County Public Library's  Book Hunters have rustled up some rootin’ tootin’ reads to put you in the mood for barbecue and funnel cake.

You say you don't know a bucking bronco from a good beaujolais and that you'll take a pair red Converse All-Stars over a pair of Ostrich-skin Tony Lamas any day of the week? Fine by us (but you're going to miss out on the deep-fried Snickers). Just visit Book Hunters, tell us what you're looking for and we'll find you some books that'll fit you like a good pair of boots (or Chucks or whatever).
