Can I just say - drawing on my own experience - that if you've got time to do book reviews, it's well worth it. Not only do you get practice at writing a concise report for publication, you get a free book too! Unfortunately there's nothing in this list which really appeals/fits my research area, but if it did I'd jump at the chance.
