Forgot to mention this somewhat esoteric title, that I read in ebook
format recently:

The Kirov Murder and Soviet History
by Matthew E. Lenoe
If you want to read about the murder of Sergei Kirov and what it meant
in the scheme of things in the 1930'ties in the USSR, this is THE book
to read.

Also, I've bought the science & (Ancient) history titles below
but havnt read them just yet (in no particular order):

(1) Strange New Worlds: The Search for Alien Planets and Life beyond Our Solar System
by Ray Jayawardhana

(2) Absolutely Small: How Quantum Theory Explains Our Everyday World
by Michael D. Fayer

(3) Mesopotamia: The Invention of the City
by Gwendolyn Leick

(4) Lucy's Legacy: The Quest for Human Origins
by Kate Wong & Donald Dr Johanson

(5) DNA
by James Watson

(6) Egypt, Greece, and Rome: Civilizations of the Ancient Mediterranean
by Charles Freeman

(7) Ancient Iraq
by Georges Roux

(8) The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers
by Paul Kennedy. I Read this like 10 years ago & thought I re-read in
ebook format. Highly recommended.

(9) The Post-Soviet Wars
by Christoph Zurcher

(10) Why Does E=mc2?: (And Why Should We Care?)
by Brian Cox & Jeff Forshaw
