    Lucille Ball will always be Number 1 in my book.

    I have been a huge Lucille Ball fan for a long, long, time. I also own a lot of books about Lucille Ball, but the book that I purchased the other day called 'The Lucy Book: Here Life in Televison, is really and outstanding book, it full of so much detail of the wonderful life that she had. The author really took his time of giving us every aspect of her life in this wonderful book. I wish I could rate this book a 10 because it deserves more than a 5 star, so if you Love Lucy like I do, I recommend this book to you, this is really and honestly a truly great treasure to have in your Lucy collection.
