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.

Crows.  as I have mentioned before, some people have a thing about crows.  One for Sorrow has this poem, called Counting Crows. One for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl, four for a boy, five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret, never to be told, eight for a wish, nine for a kiss, ten for a time of joyous bliss.  
Is it weird that a really creepy ghost story from Mary Downing Hahn is a joyous blissful thing for me?  I don't know, but it is!  MDH is one of the most talented, creep-tastic, excellent writers ever.  And this new one is no exception.  Not for someone looking for a joke ending or assurances that creepiness is not real.  Great, great, great.
