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.

Tsar or Czar

It is spelled either way.  I prefer to spell it tsar, probably just because that was the way it was spelled in Nicholas and Alexandra, which I had to read in tenth grade and loved.  I was sad to see that N and A is not available on audio, but then I found The Family Romanov:  murder, mayhem and fall of Imperial Russia, a recommended audio, downloaded it and loved it.
One of the most intriguing characters in this whole story is Rasputin, but he wasn't mentioned as much as I had hoped in this book.  One of the main reasons why I loved Norbit is that his girl friend was named Rasputia!
This was a very interesting and well done non-fiction book for tweens and teen.
