I have been enjoying perusing some of the book ideas you have been suggesting.  I also got into British history through the Tudors.  I began with historical fiction and with Henry VIII. I have read Alison Weir, Antonia Fraser and many others whose names escape me on a Friday late in the day.  I got into history after the events of 9/11 began to depress me.  Escaping into the past has been much more rewarding.  I am reading up on Elizabeth I as I write my graduation paper to become a psychoanalyst.  David Starkey is a good historian of Elizabeth.Another good source of history information is the Teaching Company lectures (www.Teach12.com).  If you like well taught history you can't go wrong with anything that Rufus Fears teaches.  He has a way of putting you in the scene of history.  He has lecture series on famous Greeks, famous Romans, Winston Churchill and others.  I highly recommend this source.Laura
