RE: Orphans, etc.

I think it's a good idea, too, but i would urge that books be 
chosen that more obviously and directly address issues of 
interest to people subscribed to this list. One such new book 
(which i am currently reviewing for the Journal of Scholarly 
Publishing) is Kathleen Fitzpatrick's "Planned Obsolescence" (NYU 
Press, 2011):


It would actually be quite appropriate to offer this book for 
"post-publication" crowd review because the manuscript was posted 
for pre-publication crowd review as an experiment, given that one 
of its main topics is the need to change how peer review works.
