Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

OMG! OMG ! Finally After 31 years!

Earth's Children

I don't know if any of you can appreciate the level of excitement that I experienced when I visited 

to comment on her question--- 

Too long to wait for your book??

Is there a series that you love, that has had a longer than you like pause between it's last book and the next?

While knowing that it had been almost 8 years since Auel's last book, I clicked on over to to confirm the beginning date of this series to see the most fantastic, wonderful, scream out loud news that this reader was dying to see. WE ARE GOING TO GET A NEW BOOK MARCH 2011! A NEW BOOK, A NEW BOOK I say, dancing around and around in a circle. Now you may be saying so-- but it was 2002 since we had the last one! The first book came out in 1980--31 years ago. I mean my gosh, that's before some of you were even born. I was just commenting today to a lady at our local used book store that I hoped I'd get to read at least one more of Auel's books before I got so old that I couldn't see to read them. 
Well, there goes my reading schedule shot all to hell cause I'll definitely be rereading this series in anticipation of the new book. Oh, boy can't wait to write the reviews for this 5 star series of books. If you like historical fiction (I'm talking cave dwelling people here), romance, action, adventure, mystery--this series is so great. OMG, I just can't wait.  

Sorry, Gena but as much as I anticipated  "Unraveled", nothing, I mean nothing is more anticipated than "The Land of Painted Caves".  I just can't believe it, I was off to bed an hour ago and thought I'll read just one more email and now, I so hyped up, I don't know if I can sleep or not.

I've got the other books in the series so I will buy this one. To be honest though I thought they were beginning to become a bit repetitive - lets hope theres something new in this latest book.

I too started this series as a teenager! I remember giving a book report on Clan of the Cave Bear in grade 8 or 9 - I remember giving the report, just not the grade (it was a long time ago - 1982/83). I can't wait to read this next one and see how it all plays out!
