Edward was a lawyer and a politician and wrote a history of the civil war History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England: Begun in the Year 1641 (archive.org has scans, linked from his wikipedia page).

Reading:
SPQR. Still. It's very readable, but also quite long.

Also, I forgot, on paper I'm reading the "world of ice and fire" which I got in Sweden (in English). It's pretty with lots of pictures so needs to be on paper. Also the "author" is clearly not up on the events of the books...
