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.

Baseball in April and Other Stories was an I-need-an-audiobook choice from the library. I've never read a Gary Soto book and so I was glad to get one. I love short stories and some of these were really wonderful. They were based in part on Mr. Soto's growing up in California's Central Valley. None were bad! In fact, most were really great! Some I just didn't get, you know? So I had to give 4 of the 5 stars, but this book really is good.
