A History of the English Speaking Peoples by Winston Churchill.

It is not as ponderous as it sounds. Yes, it is 4 volumes long, but it's written in a very conversational style (imagine sitting in front of a fireplace with a bandy snifter in your hand listening to Sir Winston...) - it was written for the mass market just before WW2 when Churchill was not the PM and his family finances were rather precarious.

The book was mainly written in the late 1930s but not published until after the war.

Whole-heartedly recommended.

Jefferson and Monticello, The Biography of a Builder. By Jack McLaughlin
We visited Monticello last spring and left with more questions than answers. Saw some good books in their gift shop but waited till we got home and found the titles on Bookfinder.com, saved a bunch of money. It's a pretty good book.
The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.
