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.

Simply the Best
Coaltown Jesus is theology done right. Walker asks for help from God when his brother dies and he and his mom are having a tough time of it. He asks God to help his mom, who runs a nursing home and is just so beaten down by the death of her eldest son, I think the death was drug-related, but when Jesus actually show up, he ends up helping both Walker and his mom. Amazing, amazing book. Wonderful. Wonderful. I can't say enough. This was the first book I read by Ron Koertge but it won't be my last.
