holding my bookmark

it's a bit slow-going, but i'm reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. This book was translated from French (to English, duh) and is now available in paperback. So far i'm really liking it. maybe i'm late to the party and all of you already know about this and have formed an opinion. this book caught my eye at B&N a few months back, and i couldn't get it out of my head. not wanting to make a purchase without a recommendation, i commandeered my neighbor to pick up a copy at one of the many libraries she haunts. (i have my own PLAC card, but none of "my" libraries showed a copy in their collection...)
anyhoo, i'll keep you posted on my progress and thoughts from this highly-acclaimed novel
