I can't comment on Houston, as I haven't been there in probably 15 years.
Austin has 5 HP-B stores, a few B&N, and in the corner of 6th St. and Lamar, there's a great Independent bookstore called Book People. MrsHouseLibrary and I are there at least once a month. There's also another called 12th St Books. It's got a good selection, but unless the owner happens to be there, it's by appointment only.
We were in Dallas/FW this past summer and spent 4 days touring art museums, antique shops and bookstores. I think there are 11 H-PBs in that area, and the one that KatrinkaV mentioned is HUGE! I couldn't help but think a bus was going to come by to take people to other parts of the store, but none ever showed up.
Let me know when you're coming to Austin, and maybe I could take you to these places.
You may want to check out the Group - Favorite Bookstores. I created that Group a few years ago - prior to LT having anything related to venues. I'm not sure if there's much on Texas in there, but if you sort the subject lines, they should mostly arrange themselves by State and then City.
