That's just not right.

You need to tell us. We won't think you are strange. (Well I won't anyway).

Oh yes, you will.

I can't explain how I came across this book because I am not sure how that happened and it is not like anything I usually read or have ever read. At first I thought from the description of the book on Amazon that it was fiction, and so I googled the subject and it was not fiction. And then for some strange reason I became interested. But it is a really strange book (to me). I finished it.

The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri.

Now aren't you all sorry you wondered? It is the strangest book I have ever read. It is just strange.

You're right I do think you are strange, but only because you think reading that particular book is some how strange or at least think others might believe your reading it is so. However, good for you if reading this is expanding your interest in reading materials.

I looked it up, sounds rather interesting. Not to say, I will be rushing out to read it, but it seems like it may be a good read.

While looking up to see if my library had "The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri" I saw they had "Waging Heavy Peace: A Hippy's Dream" and since they didn't have the former, I downloaded the latter.

While there, I also downloaded "Save Me From Myself" -- not because I am all that interested in the salvation of Korn's lead singer, but he looks a lot like the Russian Rasputin.

Talk about weird...
