End 2011 with these Great Reads

If, like a lot of people, you're feeling particularly lonely in the office today, or are just looking forward to some time off between now and the New Year, Longform.org has posted its best of 2011 in non-fiction. It couldn't be easier to transfer them to your Kindle, or take in clean, uncluttered text with Readability right there at Longform. 

For other curated lists, check out the selections from the editors of Mental Floss, Salon's Best Books of 2011 and the 10 Best Books from the New York Times.

The IdeaFestival blog, like many of you, will be taking a short break until Jan. 2. But please follow us @ideafestival on Twitter, or on our Facebook page for a few links between now and then. We'll see you next year!
