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.

Good Guys

I do love the Property Brothers.  And so it was good to listen to It Takes Two:  Our Story with my mom.  It does seem like they are.  I remember one part of the book talks about a trip that they took to India where they heard parents who had no regard for their girl children.  This was shocking to me and then I read Sold and then I started digging around and I found that it is, sadly, more common than I had thought.  I am not picking on Indians, because we know that here in the US there are the same kinds of "parents." But it was weird that I would hear about it first in this book and then end up reading Sold and learning more.
