The Elegance of the Hedgehog

A strange title, I know, but the Amazon reviews often go something like this:

""The Elegance of the Hedgehog" transcends excellence. It is one of those rare books with a special inner quality that makes you ponder over life in a way only very few others can. After turning the last page, I was left staring into space, feeling bereft. I wished there was more to read, yet its ending befitted the whole tale. I now understand why it received so many wonderful reviews in France recently and why it became such a literary success. It fully deserves it."

Plus our own Brigitte gives it 2 thumbs up, so how could we go wrong?

    Julie - just wondering what the order is on the waitlist - is the top-most or bottom-most person the first that will be given a spot if one opens? I don't remember how many were on the list when I signed up. Thank you.

      The waitilist is automatic -- first come first served -- and I think the person at the top is the next in line.
