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.

The Underground Girls of Kabul: In Search of a Hidden Resistance in Afghanistan was one of those "no way" books, in that while I listened to it I found myself saying, "no way!" a good many times. And it got me thinking a lot and so I found myself having to go back and rewind and re-listen, but that was not because I found it uninteresting, on the contrary, it is a book that makes one think. Here is the website for the book. I read this book for the nonfiction book group that I am in and again it proved that just because one HAS to read something, it doesn't always mean it is terrible! Very, very thought-provoking.
