What you read is what (and where) you get

=> My answer…
Plenty of great suggestions already. Mind if I pause for a moment and try to give some context to it all? Great, thanks.
If you already consider yourself entrepreneurial and leaning towards – pun intended – being innovative-minded then (for the most part) skip the stuff on entrepreneurs and innovation. No sense strengthening those muscles more.
Instead shift your attention a step ahead of yourself and focus on the business / marketing, as well as leadership / management / people aspects. In short, just because your idea scales doesn’t mean you’ll be able to scale with it. The skill set to put a startup on the map is not the same as post-startup or post-post-startup (for lack of a better term). To some extent, what you read is going to depend on the ongoing role(s) your wish to play as your biz baby grows and evolves. One size might fit all, but given the stakes shoot for the size that best suits you.
Finally, be wary of others giving advice on what to read without first asking about where your current and future blind-spots might be. This answer included.
p.s. All the being said, given the suggestions to date, make sure to indulge yourself in some analytics. Turning your data into information is a skill that can be applied arcoss a growing number of disciplines.
