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.

He was the devil, you know, in the White City
The Devil in the White City, I was blown away. What a great, great book. And the devil, referred to in that book as H.H. Holmes, mostly, was a fascinating, foul and frightening character from history. I had never heard of him before, even though he is considered by many to be America's first serial killer. The Beast of Chicago: an account of the life and crimes of Henry W. Mudgett, known to the world as H.H. Holmes focuses on the monster himself.
