The Ragman's Memory was an excellent book, the seventh in the Joe Gunther series. The title got me thinking about this poem. I read it when I was working as a pastor and on a mission trip to DC with the kids and it stuck with me all of these years.
The poem has nothing to do with the book.
Anyway....this book was really, really good! And so I am on to the 8th!
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.
