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.

Mr. Gantos

makes me proud to be from Western Pennsylvania.  With my Western PA accent and all.  I do feel embarrassed by it sometimes.  I know that many consider it to be low class and look down upon me for it.  I understand.  So when I hear Jack Gantos, brilliant man that he is, speaking with such a thick WPa accent, it honestly can bring me close to tears.  Writing Radar: Using Your Journal to Snoop Out and Craft Great Stories is a fantastic book in that it is completely hilarious and entertaining, just like all of his books, and it also give excellent help and instruction for aspiring writers.
