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.

Katherine How Great Thou Art
Quakers talk in Lyddie. I really liked Lyddie. But that is not surprising, knowing the author is Katherine Paterson. There are some very funny lines in Lyddie. And the power of reading is subtly shown here. This takes place in Lowell, MA and there still in an area in Lowell known as The Acre. Bette Davis was born there, in Lowell. There is a lot to learn here. And just an excellent story to enjoy.
