Last year I read The Destiny of the Republic and loved it. As I mentioned back when I reviewed it, it made me want to visit his home in Mentor, Ohio. Well, finally I did! Below are some pictures from the trip that I made with mom and Lobster! It was so worth it! The tour was excellent. At the gift shop I picked up the book The Fatal Bullet: the assassination of James A. Garfield. It was a really, really well done graphic non-fiction and now I want to read the whole series that Rick Geary has done.
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.
