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 Locals was not my usual kind of book. But these days I think that I am not sure if I am getting to the point where I no longer have a "usual kind of book!" Maybe that is one of the good things about limiting myself to audiobooks. My sweet friend Rebeky recommended this to me and I knew nothing about it when I started it. The first chapter is WHOA and it is just WHOA and the rest of the book is so...interesting and it is very thought-provoking. It is different and funny and disturbing in some ways and I would highly recommend a listen!
