Around the world in 200 books

I'd like to read a book about each country's history, ideally one offering as comprehensive of a timeline as possible. My goal is to get a brief overview of the history of a region rather than a specific focus on any singularly important event. I'm looking for specific suggestions for any and all countries. Since that is a fairly wide net to cast, I'd settle for the best choices on the countries with the longest and most interesting histories and/or specifically interesting books. I have a Kindle, so bonus points for books available in that format.

Reading list for trip to Buenos Aires?

Do you know Buenos Aires? Have you read something - a book, author, novel - that truly captured the city for you? We are taking our first trip to Buenos Aires in the next couple of months and I'm looking for books to read that are particularly Argentinian or somehow reveal aspects of the city, its history, people and/or culture that aren't covered in the Frommer's.

How do you make interesting ideas and views stick with you?

Worst Fears Come Alive

BookFilter: I think the book takes place on Earth, and I think the book was written recently. A disaster of sorts happens and the only area of survival is a narrow strip of land, perhaps wrapping around the world, and perhaps powered/maintained by pipes. If people venture away from this strip, their worst fears/nightmares materialize and attack. I came across it somewhere on MetaFilter. Thanks in advance!

Replacement for our Humpty-Dumpty-esque Bookchairs?

Is there a more durable equivalent of the Bookchair that I could get my sister for Christmas? Right now, our home is littered with bookchairs that fell to the ground and broke in a pretty permanent way. And that's awfully tiring. The key component is the fact that the page holder "tabs" can adjust for either very thick or (somewhat) thin books, so that's vital in any replacement. I'm in Canada.
