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.

Open the Door: A Journey to the True Self by Joyce Rupp is probably one of those books I will be reading and rereading for a long time. It's a book that will have different meanings and impact at different times in one's life, so it will always be new. Our Sunday School class began reading this but I found it too personal, too painful to discuss in Sunday School, so I have only gone twice since we started it! Isn't that terrible? I mean, if one can't be exposed in Sunday School, where can one! Especially at the church I attend. A pretty amazing place. And the people in SS are wonderful, so accepting and caring. But it was just too hard. A door can be a powerful metaphor for many things. Great book and I look forward to reading it again.
