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.

And I Thought I Was Cool!

I remember one January when I drove from Pittsburgh to San Diego and I was so proud of myself.  Bicycle, from The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle, sets out to BIKE to San Francisco from DC! I LOVED this book.  I thought it was just so clever.  I can't wait until Christina Uss has a new book!
It really made me want to get into biking.
David Levithan, I am still trying hard not to be fat!  So don't worry!  And from everything I have read, biking is great for weight loss!  BUT my friend's brother was an expert biker.  And he was on just a regular ride and something was on the trail and he went over the handle bars and his helmet cracked and now he is paralyzed.  And I know that was a horrible, horrible freak accident, but it scared the heck out of me.  My heart just aches and aches and hurts and hurts for him.  He is a devout man, and he just wants to go and be with his Lord.  It is just such a sad and horrible time.
