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.

Just WAY too Long

Full Dark, No Stars was okay.  It was not good enough to be good because it was so very, very long. If Stephen King were not such an accomplished and rich author, I would probably blame his editor, but I bet that King doesn't really have to listen to editors too much these days.  Which is unfortunate because I would think that even an experienced writer like King can fall in love with his own words so much that he would erroneously think that everyone needed to appear between the cover of his book.  It was a collection of four "short" stories, but there was nothing short about any of them.  Even the very best one, which I was going to say was the shortest, but maybe just seemed shorter because it was the best, was too long.
