My copies of the Texas Almanac are the most important books I own about Texas. They are packed full of information about all 254 counties. It covers all things Texas population information, history, political, sports, weather and more.
Did I say copies? Yes, I have Texas Almanacs from way back but I always have two copies of the most current edition. My hardbound copy of the Texas Almanac sits on my desk right next to my Bible and Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine, all there for quick reference. My softbound copy of the Texas Almanac is kept in my RV. I use it as I travel around Texas.
You might be thinking, "Why do I need a bound copy of the Texas Almanac when I can get all of this on the Internet?"
It is true that the folks that publish the Texas Almanac have a great webpage, but even though I'm as technologically addicted as anyone, it is just not the same. Also, when you're traveling around the great state of Texas and you think you're going to get all this information on your smart phone, then you're not traveling far enough. If you haven't been to places in Texas where the cell towers are far and few between then you have not really seen Texas.
The Texas Almanac - "The source for all things Texas since 1857".
