Where's all the writing?

It seems a touch bizarre that 2007's Sports Book of the Year only features one cricket book.

Serialisation after serialisation after... sorry, got to stop there it's a serial after all... seems to have been offered to newspapers this year. Autobiographies of course, nothing else would give papers more money.

This year's award features only Simon Wilde's hardy attempt on Shane Warne's life: a biography without interviewing the player. Surely there are more cricket books worthy of a mention? Read those in contention here.
