What are some good resources for finding out about recent/new/upcoming non-fiction books that discuss the web or the internet?

I feel a little silly even asking, but I'm grappling with the fact that the web is pretty thoroughly my native medium at this point. I haven't gone actively hunting for new books in years, beyond casually browsing a physical bookstore every few months. If it wasn't handed to me by a friend or mentioned on e.g. The Daily Show, I might not even know it exists.
So, how do I get caught up and stay current in a subject-specific way with what has come out and what's coming out in terms of engaging non-fiction books about the internet and its intersections with society, science, politics, creative philosophy, etc?
I'm not interested in technical manuals, how-to guides, programming references, or so forth. I want to find books for mostly non-specialist audiences that say interesting things about the internet and its related phenomena.
