Spend it picking over the last year in tech instead, with The Best of the Reg, 2011, the choicest morsels of our coverage mechanically reconstituted, and twizzled direct to your Kindle device of choice.
The Register and its sister sites published somewhere in the region of 14,000 stories this year, so there was little of note in the tech industry and beyond that we didn't at least touch upon.
The Best of the Reg 2011 pulls together some of El Reg's best writing on the biggest topics of the year, laced with some of its funniest. It costs less than a turkey sandwich, AND you'll still want to look at it after Boxing Day.
If you don't mind blurting out "What? Steve Jobs is DEAD?" at this year's office party, you can probably live without it.
But if you want to at least pretend that you were paying attention you need to buy this book.
