Department of Book Reports: New to the shelves!

At the urging of several friends, we've bought in Keith Richard's autobiography, Life (Little Brown, $29.99). He assures us on the jacket flap copy "I remember it all" and judging from my flipping thru the book, he does! 576 pages of Rock n Roll history, told from a true insider. The book has been received very well critically, seeing most celebrity bios are not so absorbing, and this one is something of a history of our times.

Jean Auel's recent release The Land of the Painted Caves, (Doubleday $30) has been a bit of a surprise best seller for us. Weighing in at 757 pages, fans are delighted to revisit Auel's special blend of prehistoric fantasy and anthropology after a 9 year wait.

And of course we are adding more used stock weekly. We just received 5 boxes of books from a fellow bookmonger, Tom of Acorn Books. These titles (and 9564 more!) can be browsed 24 hours a day at our catalog page, available at (Jackson Street) Books On 7th andfine Independent bookstores everywhere.
