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.

Uh oh...am I stuck on another series?
Rick Geary's graphic nonfiction books in his Treasury of Victorian Murder series. The Case of Madeleine Smith was interesting because Geary is simply a great storyteller and illustrator and also because I had never heard of Madeleine Smith and also because, even after reading it, I can't be totally sold on the idea that she did it. Good stuff here.
