My history reading so far this year:

A Gambling Man: Charles II's Restoration Game, Jenny Uglow
A great and grisly read.

The Industrial Revolutionaries, Gavin Weightman

Citizens, Simon Schama.
Beautiful narrative history: but it may give you nightmares considering the similarities between late Ancien Regime France and the modern United States.

I just recently began The Age of Wonder, by Richard Holmes.
