How about 12 FREE photo books?
At $6 each (including shipping -- which is also free), that's $72 worth of books to chronicle your year.
Now, I do have to tell you that the way Hot Prints is able to do this is your book will come with an advertisement from one of their "partners" in it. But they promise the ad will not be on your photos, but instead is a full page insert, which is easily removable.
