Flaubert's "A Simple Soul"

Much of my reading lately has been fragmentary and unenthused: the thraldom of school, I suppose.

Started Flaubert's "A Simple Soul" (from his late Three Tales; also called "A Simple Heart") last night (via Kindle). Didn't get far but it kept my attention. Another female protagonist. I underlined only the phrase "she would bury the log under the ashes," because for some reason it intrigued me.
