There are a couple of times of year when colleagues start casually stopping by my office to chat about books. It would happen more often if I weren't on a different floor than many of them – and also, it's not just casual talk.

Summer is when many of us get a chance to settle in with a book, something that might provide a bit of escape. Here are 16 books to look forward to – and a few that are already out, if you're ready to get started on your summer reading.
