Just started to read my way through "Theravada Buddhism" by Richard F. Gombrich and thought I would recommend it.
It gives really good insight into some history of Theravada Buddhism as well as helping one understand the society that the Buddha lived in.

Lost to a world in which I crave no part,
I sit alone and listen to my heart,
Pleased with my little corner of the earth,
Glad that I came--not sorry to depart Richard Le Gallienne
