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.

As I Write this
Love is a Losing Game by Amy Winehouse. Amy, My Daughter is written by Mitch Winehouse. I didn't really know much about her but then I read what Roxane Gay had written about her in Bad Feminist and I was intrigued. I think this might be it. What a fantastic talent Ms. Winehouse was. And from stories about her, she seemed like a beautiful, giving person. I also read this and this and this. And indeed, many parallels can be drawn. I really do wish that Ms. Winehouse had been able to overcome her disease. She gave much when here on earth and she had a lot left to give.
