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.

Katherine Patterson and Lobster!
Katherine Patterson! When I told her how honored I was to meet her, she replied that she was honored to meet me as well. I was instantly reminded of the story of Dorothy Day when she was talking with an indigent man and a person from the press came to interview her. She asked whom the interview was there to meet? Her or the indigent man. She didn't assume that she was greater than or more important than the man to whom she was ministering. I wish I could find the actual story, but I can't. Anyway, Patterson autographed a copy of The Preacher's Boy, which I loved so much. It was truly an awesome day!!
