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.

Short and So Sweet

As I have said before Angela Johnson can tell a beautiful story and she can tell beautiful short stories.  And I can't say I've ever read an Angela Johnson story that I didn't like.  Some of these I truly love.  A ginormous smile would just appear when I would come to the last line of many of these, here in Gone from Home.  Literary and lovely.  Read the book, only 101 pages, but it should take you a long time, because you'll want to treasure each sentence.  Seriously.
