What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.

Tough to Read about, but Necessary
Ever since my ALA class I have taken a renewed interest in services to children with disabilities. Last night I read the very short, but excellent book, T4, about the Nazi plan to euthanize people with disabilities. It is told in verse from the POV of a young deaf girl. I don't want to give any more away, and the book is so short, and so worth reading, that I would just urge you to read it yourself. And pray that evils such as this do not happen anymore. And do all that you can to protect the lives and dignity of all.
