June 8, 2004 - interesting astronomical read

A couple of years ago, I read Eli Maor's book June 8, 2004: Venus in Transit.  

In this book Maor discusses not only a celestial phenomenon, but he also explores the history of astronomical exploration.  At 240 pages, this book is a relatively easy read, but by no means simplistic.  
If you're looking for a read for the late summer or just a book to expand your knowledge of astronomy, I recommend this book.
