I just found out that the 6th and final book in Jean Auel's "Earth's Children" series will be released in March of 2011!!! It is to be called The Land of Painted Caves and omg I am so excited! I know this will sound just awful but I was so afraid Ms. Auel would become incapacitated or even pass away before she had a chance to finish the series... isn't that a terrible thing to think? But omg this is a series that was started in 1980, so it's not too much of an off-the-wall fear.
But finally...finally... we'll get to see how the series ends.
