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.

Burn Baby Burn
I am not a fan of fire.
Of course only nut jobs and criminals are fans of the kinds of fires that are highlighted in Slow Burn, the 44th Spenser installment by Ace Atkins, carrying on the wow, wow, wow of Robert B. Parker in an eerie dude-is-Atkins-channeling-Parker-from-the-grave kind of way.
Spenser is so lovable. And this book has Hawk and Quirk and Susan, too. And I am really loving the Susan and Spenser parts. I think they have the best relationship in any book.
I learned what "jakes" are! And I learned about the Sparks, too!
