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.

Fruits of the Poisonous Tree was VERY 5 star and ahead of it's time, I think. This made me feel the way that I did about Death Masks in that it gave me a renewed sense of enthusiasm about a series. There is no corpse in the book, as the author says in his foreword, because the murder that takes place here is rape. I thought that was a powerful statement about the crime of rape. And keep in mind, this was published in 1993. Very, very, very good.
