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.

Another All True Kinda Deal!
Robert B. Parker's Little White Lies by Ace Atkins has a message that is all too true, sadly. In this case the "bad guy" is a big time fraud and yet has been on countless news shows as an expert, faking his way through it all. Claiming to be a former Navy SEAL or special forces, serious military hero, all kinds of things. And one of the reasons he is easily able to defraud the woman who hires Spenser is that the guy has really been on these news shows- the media having never checked his background! There are a lot of creeps who do this. Great book, as usual. Atkins, as I have said before, does a really terrific job with Spenser!
