-The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. This little dude has been all over the place lately; blogs, magazines, conversation. I've heard some people L-O-V-E it, and some people can't get into it. I guess we'll see which category I fall in to when I finish it in a week or two.
-Buddhism Plain and Simple by Steve Hagen. Apparently, the "clear and precise exposition of Buddhism" has *changed the lives* of some acquaintances, so I figured I'd give it a whirl. Not that my life sucks all that much but improvements are always welcome in any situation, even excellent ones.
-Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris. Yeah... I have a not-so-secret undying adoration for David Sedaris. I mean, the man is intelligent and well-traveled and neurotic and high-larious. I fell for him when I was assigned a compilation of short stories that he edited (which, for the life of me I cannot remember the title of) for my creative writing class in college, and I've never looked back. I'm way excited for him to blow my mind. Again.
-Maus I: A Survivor's Tale by Art Spiegelman. Confession: I heart graphic novels. I'm kind of a nerd that way. Specifically graphic novels that re-create historical events from a different perspective. Not only does a good graphic novel satisfy my love for visual representations, but it also addresses my proclivity for the written word. And, you know, this book (and it's sequel) won the Pulitzer. So...that's pretty badass.
