I have picked a Book of the Year for last year (as I do every year) but haven't gotten around to announcing it since I decided to break with tradition and do more of a full review rather than the brief plug I usually go with. I expect to have it up in a day or so, but I've also been held prisoner by some captivating reading (which I'll also review) and I just got in a big shipment of science books from Scientific American's book club that I'm dying to delve into, so we'll see.
Update: Let's call it Monday. I don't have the time I need today (Friday) to put the post up and traffic tends to drop off over the weekend, so Monday it will be up.
