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.

I was wrong. I thought Big Nate was a Diary of a Wimpy Kid rip-off. I had no idea that it has actually been a comic strip since 1991! I am very embarrassed and ashamed of those feelings! I thought that a lot of this was funny, but the reason I didn't love it was that Nate is a jerk, really. Greg can be jerky, but Nate is always a jerk, it seems. There is a difference. It is that whole Ramona vs. Junie B. deal. But I will read the next one to give him a chance!
