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 read about Americanized: Rebel Without a Green Card in this article and bought it and listened to it the same day. What a great book. And in the first chapter, Sara Saedi explains Iranian history in a way that is SO clear and good that I think now I can tackle Persepolis, which I have been wanting to read and have really enjoyed what I have read so far, but couldn't understand Iranian history! But now I do! I mean, a quick understanding! I mean recent history! I mean a simple one! But man, this book was just so so so so so so so so good. I also enjoyed the podcast here!
