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): http://www.plannedobsolescence.net/kathleen-fitzpatrick/ 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.
