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.

Sarah: Not Boring at All!

For years I have looked at the book Sarah, Plain and Tall and imagined that it was all kinds of dull and boring.  The cover is awful.  All of the covers are.  Wow.  They just scream dull and boring- if dull and boring can be screamed.  But man, it really wasn't.  It was just a sweet little story about a dad and his two kids and their lonelines following the death of their mother/wife.  Dad sends for a mail-order-bride and it is Sarah, from Maine, who is plain and tall.  And not a ton of things happen, but there is love and hope and yeah, it is just a good little story.
