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.

Don't Know Much 'bout Current Pop Culture
Joan Crawford and Bette Davis didn't like each other at all and that sisters, Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland didn't feel much family love and that Judy made Lena mad because Judy was kinda last minute and Lena liked to be prepared.
Kathy Griffin until my mom started saying how much she loved her. Mom is a big Anderson Cooper fan, as am I, and Griffin and Cooper's mom, Gloria Vanderbilt are best friends, or at the kids say today, "besties." Well, maybe not best friends, but super good friends. And I also think that I knew that Griffin and one of my all-time heroes, Joan Rivers were close.
So I bought my mom Griffin's new book, Kathy Griffin's Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index and she is loving it.
I then saw Official Book Club Selection: a Memoir According to Kathy Griffin on one of the downloadable sites from the library and listened to it and loved it. Then I bought A-Z on audible and blew through that, too!
Very funny lady. Very hard-working. I know that some people find her mean, but they said that about Joanie, too.
