Heh.  I asked this question recently on the LMB mailing list (a fun place, 
btw), and I got two contradictory replies - one person said it was with a J 
like in "jump"; one reckoned it's a soft J as in French.  (LMB herself 
obviously didn't notice the post, as she didn't answer.)

So I'm going to go on pronouncing it as I always have - with a soft J. 
BOO-zhold (second syllable rhyming with "bold").

Until the sky falls on our heads...
