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.

Harder than Hard
The Port Chicago 50 and learn of the horrible treatment of African American sailors. Harder still to admit that I had not heard about this until I read Steve Sheinkin's book. This is again one of those things that I pray and hope is different now among kids who are learning American history. Here is more about the Port Chicago Disaster. An excellent book.
