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.

You Bring the Distant Near was a "fall into this book" kind of book. Mitali Perkins just writes so well and it just sucked me in and brought me into a world very different from my own. Not just because my family isn't from India but also because our family tradition is one: We have no traditions. So I have no sense of family in that way. Beautiful and engrossing.
