Comments from the Editor
==========================================================

Yesterday was a holiday for those of us here at Codeguru. As such, today we are catching up. Rather than writing a long editorial this week, I'll simply post a couple of extra items in the list of recently published books below! If you've read any of these books, feel free to submit a review to the Codeguru book review page.

Until next week...

Brad!
