    The Stephen Fry Chronicles
    Grand Design- Stephen Hawking
    Boffinology- Justin Pollard
    Professor Stewart's Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities
    Wonders of the Solar System- Brian Cox
    All my friends are dead (amazing read )

    I tried not to ask for too many because I have a habit of buying too many books at once and then I take ages to read them all Also I'm running out of shelf space, I might have to invest in a kindle.
