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.

I Survived the Hindenburg Disaster, 1937 is the thirteenth book in the I Survived Series. Here is more information on the disaster. Here is the video footage. Here is the famous radio reporting, which was also included at the end of the audio book, along with the Linda Tarshis telling about her research of the book. I thought this one was really good. And I did learn some things I didn't know before about the Hindenburg. Here is a list of 9 surprising facts! I think I found out 1, 2, 4 and 7 from the book.
