Recommended Reads

Earlier this week, I emailed several writers whose work I read and respect for an answer to the following question:

What's the best book you've read lately?

Here's what a few had to say in response:

Cory Doctorow
"Vernor Vinge's Rainbow's End."

Annie Sprinkle
"Who has time to read books? Actually it was Letters from Linda M. Montano by Linda Montano."

Bruce Sterling
"Probably Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed by Jared Diamond. I'm kind of liking Adam Greenfield's Everyware: The Dawning Age of Ubiquitous Computing. Alan Liu's Laws of Cool: Knowledge Work and the Culture of Information has got something going on. Erik Davis's little book about Led Zeppelin is hilarious."
