So, what are you reading, Summer 2011?

So, what books are you currently reading? A couple of recent reads include Where Good Ideas Come From, by Steven Johnson, and Being Wrong, by Kathryn Schulz. Johnson describes how innovation is nurtured by creative environments and cultures, while Schulz explores how misconceptions are perpetuated and how errors contribute to new ideas. Both books make a case for the benefits of ambiguity, tolerance and the imperfections of humans.

Also on the bedstand with bookmarks are Keith Richards' Life, the autobiography of the Rolling Stones' guitarist, Doug Glanville's The Game From Where I Stand, about his life in the Major Leagues, and Dave Eggers’ collection of The Best American Nonrequired Reading of 2010, short stories, essays, and other pieces, including work by Sherman Alexie, Kurt Vonnegut, and Stephan Colbert.

What about you?
