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.

Alvin, oh Alvin

When I first met Alvin I loved him.  But now, well, that third book...every little thing that used to endear me to Alvin now aggravates me.  He is whiny and his behavior is pretty much ridiculous.  Alvin Ho:  allergic to the Great Wall, the Forbidden Palace and Other Tourist Attractions will probably be the last in the series that I will read.  What I did really like were things I learned about Chinese culture and history.  But you know....if Look was so off base about Native American culture, how can anything she writes about anything be trusted?
