Rough Country by John Sandford. This is the third in the Virgil Flowers series of mysteries. Set in northern Minnesota, Flowers is called when a woman at an inn is murdered. Typical of Sandford, with tight plotting, spare dialogue and interesting characters.
The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Physics by Julian Barbour. Barbour’s idea is that time does not really exist. Just started it, but it looks very interesting.
The Inheritance of Rome: Illuminating the dark ages by Chris Wickham. A really good history of Europe and western Asia, from 400 to 1000 AD.
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. Historical fiction about Henry VIII and that period, told from the point of view of Thomas Cromwell, with the villain being Thomas More. Wonderfully written, and, from what I read in other reviews, historically defensible.
The Great SF stories volume 1: 1939 ed. by Isaac Asimov and Martin Greenberg. I have this whole series on my shelf and I think I will re-read them
