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 Wayne Spence said, "Some people are lifters and some people are leaners."
The Lifters didn't do it for me. I don't know if maybe I am in a book slump, or an attitude slump! I would give Dave Eggers another try though. I am just not too much of a fantasy type person and well, while I guess this is more magical realism than fantasy, it was just a little too fantasy for me, without being exceptional, so I couldn't really get into it. I would give Eggers another read though, because the parts of the book that weren't magical were great, I thought. The real-life stuff.
