I very much enjoyed The Calculus Gallery by William Dunham. It's not exactly a doddle to read - I'd rank it somewhere between a text book and a popular maths book, so not too bad but you might need a pen and paper beside your bed!

Just picked up Bayes Rule by James V Stone, haven't read much of it yet but the topic is certaintly interesting.

Another book that shows promise is Music of the Primes by Marcus du Sautoy, I'm sure this is mentioned above so you may already have it.

Feel free to add some of your own favourites, I can never have enough interesting maths books. The real challenge is getting time to read em...
